We were at the Farm Institute and saw a low flying helicopter. On the way home, stopped at the airfield and there it was! We walked over as others had done, met the Army pilots who welcomed us to get in and look around, and answered operational questions. They were on a training flight and stopped for food and a...

I was here for a wedding and it was my first time at an air field so have little to compare it to. The planes that were on the grounds were all immaculate. It was neat to see the different types all owned by different people. The grounds were well manicured and overall I got the sense that everyone that... More

There is a cute restaurant nearby that offers local farm fresh food on there menu. A great place for breakfast of lunch. You can even walk, about 30 min, to... More

We found this place on TripAdvisor and both the food and service were excellent. We stopped food lunch. The pancakes were great. Watch planes taking off from the windows.

When planning your bike path, I would definitely advise this air field as a stop. Also the small cafe on the premise is a wonder spot for a quick bite while watching the small aircraft take off and land.

Good outside seating with a basic pub style menu. Service was good, wish I had opted for something other than scallop plate which was fried and for me, too greasy. The pulled pork sandwich, salads, and cheeseburgers that others in our group had looked very nice. They have a nice selection of beers and wines, and the view, atmosphere on... More

Take a biplane tour of MV (not cheap!) and have a meal at the Right Fork Diner right there. The Cobb Salad is fantastic.

plane rides are a bit expensive, the restaurant there is small, food took forever to make it to the table.

Want to watch a couple of mini cubs scramble down the airfield? How do these little planes ever get off the ground? Fun to watch as they swing back and forth and then finally make it.

Wonderful experience to be right next to the bi-planes as they fire up and take off, and fun to see them swoop over the restaurant and land. The Katama Airfield Restaurant is jammed for breakfast on the weekends for its location and fun for the kids and the very good diner type food, and great servers.
