  • Windy Ridge Aerotow 2022 - Aug 11th - Aug 14th

    The Windy Ridge Flyers and Kremer Aerotow Team are once again hosting the Windy Ridge Aerotow at Louck's Field!

    Loucks Field (25NK) is a private grass airport located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York. This area has a wonderful history in aviation and we continue to add to it with this premier event. We operate off of a pair of beautiful intersecting grass runways, with plenty of room for towing operations and lots of room for those more challenging landings.


    Landing fee is $25/day with a maximum for $50. Please help us plan by registeringHERE

    No meals will be provided, please bring your own or to plan to visit some restaurants in the area!

    Camping (no hook ups) and casual flying open on Wednesday.



    Directions to the Windy Ridge field

    Field Address: 8961 Ridge Road Hammondsport NY 14840


    Your GPS will get you there, but, it will probably take you the back way, pretty, but some dirt roads. (Ask Len)

    Here is the recommended route to Windy Ridge field, nice pavement, no dirt:
    Take exit 38 off route 86 – Bath Exit
    You will see hotels at this exit
    Follow route 54 North signs
    You will see the Hammondsport Fire department on your left.
    Take the next right up the hill – this is Rt 87, Wayne road
    You will see a sign for Watkins Glen and Camp Gorton, Turn right on Rt 114
    Turn Left on Ridge Road (first left)
    Go just about a mile and you will see the field on the left

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!

              Went up to Windy Ridge today for the club meeting and to prep for the aerotow. Pleased to report the field is totally dry and ready for action this week. Mike O is planning on mowing the intersection on Tuesday. Some of us are planning to arrive on Wednesday to finish setup. Marcie and I are going out to dinner at the newly renovated Waneta Inn on Wednesday night, everyone is welcome to join us. Some photos to get people hyped up!

                  Arriving Wed AM — happy to help with any setup or whatever you need. I’m also game for dinner at the new spot if you are willing to lower your standards and include me.

                      I'll be arriving by early afternoon... Make sure you're done setting up 😁. It will be nice having a "DRY" spot for my tent on the flight line.

                      Just might join you for dinner.... ​​​​​​​​​
