For many pilots, the thought of stepping out of the house, getting into an airplane, and taxiing just a few hundred feet to the runway — all without ever touching a car door — is the ultimate fantasy. For the thousands who live in residential airparks around the country, that way of life is not just a pipe dream but an everyday reality. When it comes to the benefits that fly-in communities afford, the upsides are plentiful, ranging from everything to more time spent in the air to a strong sense of neighborhood camaraderie among like-minded aviators. But selecting the right airpark to call home can be tricky, Wood Acres Airpark in Perry, MO has a 3,200-foot-long grass runway and taxi lanes leading to each lot.

If you are a pilot who craves quiet country landscapes and rural living Wood Acres Airpark is for you.
