I learned to fly on a grass strip, but I have never used a dirt strip. I am looking at a plane that needs a little work, and when I inquired about hangar space at my closest airport I was informed they have a waitlist for tie downs. I spoke to someone who may be willing to do a short term space rental in his hangar, but it’s on a dirt strip. (He is not a pilot, so he couldn’t give me any insight about operations). What benefits and challenges should I prepare for if I choose to operate from a dirt strip?
