  • Windy Ridge Aerotow 2024 August 15-18

    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.

    Due to weather issues the past few years, we've also arranged for a backup location. The Montery Flight Farm, another private grass runway about 20-25 minutes away from Windy Ridge. Fingers crossed!

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

    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!
