Kentucky Dam State Park Airport (M34) is 30 miles east of the Cunningham VOR (Paducah) on the 90 deg. radial, 8 miles South of V178. The runway is paved and 4000 feet long. The airport is approximately a mile from the resort, and transportation is available both to and from the airport for those who do not wish to walk. Please bring your own tie downs.

Dates are set for the Sedona 2022 Fall Thorp Gathering for September 23, 24 and 25.  Sky Ranch Lodge has agreed to hold a block of 12 rooms under the name “Thorp Pilot Group”.  The Block will get a 15% discount at time of booking.  The discount is based on the rate on the day you call.  For example, today’s (11 March) discounted rate is $344 per night but can change any time and will go up the closer it gets to September.  Call the Lodge directly at 928-282-6400 and ask for Raul or Max in reservations.  Reservations are fully refundable if cancelled 72 hrs in advance of your check-in date.  You will need to place a CC on file to hold the room, it won’t be charged.  I explored in-town hotels and was quoted similar room rates mostly without a room block. The Lodge is within walking distance of the airport and has a complimentary van for trips to town and we usually end up with one or two rental cars for anyone who needs a ride.  Group dinners will be planned on Friday and Saturday evenings and hopefully some flying on Saturday.  Email or call Rich Brazell if you have questions:   This email address is being protected from spambots.
