Free Lunch for Visiting Pilots!
Make plans now for September 28th to visit Palestine, TX for our first-ever fly-on of our brand new chapter. You'll find good facilities, great fellowship, and a fine assortment of war birds and other activities!
Palestine Airport (KPSN) is located approximately 4 miles northwest of the downtown core of Palestine, Texas and 19.8 miles on the 201-degree radial south of the Frankston VOR, FZT.
It features a north-south runway of 5,000' (36/18) and an east-west runways (90/27). Because of this layout, KPSN is an excellent low-time pilot airport as cross winds landings are normally less than 45-degrees. But most of the time winds are not a factor, as in late September, winds tend to be light (less than 10-knots) and either from the south or north/northwest. As always, a complete weather briefing is recommended as weather is always subject to change.
The airport elevation is approximately 413-feet, but varies somewhat depending on field location. The longer north-south runway as 4-light PAPI's for a 3-degrees glide path installed and caution should be exercises very late evening and very early morning because occasionally deer graze around the airport. A sharp eye for birds is advised, as well.
Rain Out Date: Although we don't expect it, we do have October 6th planned as our "rain out" date just in case.
More complete airport information is available on the http://www.aopa.org/ website (see the Airport Directory) or from other sites such as http://www.airnav.com/airport/KPSN. Airport diagrams are available at both locations.
We hope you come and have a wonderful visit!
