We stopped for fuel on our way from Oklahoma to New Orleans and this place was awesome! The runways were great and the fuel was easy to find and good prices. The FBO was super clean and well stocked! We were there on a Saturday and a wonderful man, I believe his name was Dwayne (spelling?) was so nice and helpful with suggestions on the rest of our trip. It was a nice place to stop and we will definitely be stopping in the next time we fly through the area and we would highly recommend to all pilots!
Very nice general aviation airport in False River Louisiana.
Very nice little airport!
