    Hi Gize,
    Capt "T" here. Just made a stop at Mackinac County Aerodrome in St. Ignace MI a week or so ago. Great Manager, Paul Fullerton, great facility, friendly folks, courtesy cars, airport dog, what's not to like?
    Stop in and say "HI." Free coffee. Just like the airports of yesteryear! Short hop to Mackinac Island.

    You're going to have a great time!

    Gets busy in the warm months (July 15 - Aug 1) in the UP. ;) But yes a great stop. The dearth of automobiles and their associated noise on Mackinac is really something to (not) hear.

    And the dearth of automobile alternatives used on the island (and their associated exhaust) is really something to smell in the warmer months. In fact when the wind is right, you can smell it from the mainland. Not particularly offensive or anything, but definitely one of the first things I noticed when we got into St Ignace for the first time.
