    What size of plane you have? There is an airpost south of the grounds on route 4, Sparta Community-Hunter Field.

    KSAR will be closed until 8/9 due to runway repairs. They are very helpful, and will accommodate you for a day shoot at the Grand.

    If you can't get into KSAR, you can try KMVN. KMVN is a big airport in a small town. Several approaches, rental cars, free car, lots of motels, and a little over 1 hour away. Another nice airport is KCPS. It is a little less than 1 hour away. Tower and several approaches. The other spot is KMDH. and it is towered with lots of approaches and is 1 hour away. If you can land on a 60'x 4000' runway you can try KPJY. I would suggest you call ahead and check on services and cars. It is 35 minutes away form Sparta.
