We have a great airport here in McKinney. Located at the edge of the busy DFW Bravo airspace you can choose to fly around some of the busiest airspace in the country if that's your cup of tea. Or you can head East or North or South and fly to some really cool and beautiful spots over the serene East Texas landscape. The airport has a 5000+ foot runway to accomodate just about any size plane. The tower operates from 6:00am to 10:00pm local time and the controllers are pretty helpful in getting you your clearance or letting you do some airwork in the pattern or in the area.
