Our ultralight runway is a 2500 foot sod runway, and is located on the northwest side of Mt. Comfort Airport. The ultralight runway, (7/25) is just north of, and parallel to Airport Boulevard. Below, you will see a map of the Mt. Comfort Airport and the ultralight runway. The ultralight runway is depicted in black, and the pattern is depicted in red. You can see that ultralights will be entering the pattern from the west and exiting the pattern to the west. If the wind is out of the west, we will flying a right hand pattern. Enter the pattern by flying over the beans on the north side of the airport. Please take care after crossing Mt. Comfort Road, not to fly over people or cars. The departure would be strait off ultralight runway 25 to the west. For an east wind, you should come in over Mt. Comfort Road and strait into the ultralight runway 7. The take off will be to the east with a left hand pattern over the bean field to the north side of the airport. Please stay clear of the General Aviation traffic pattern for runway's 7/25 and 16/34. Please be advised that the Ultralight area, including the runway, taxi strip and parking area may be just a little rough. Please use the north side, (near the bean field), for taxi strip.
