Many years ago I used to fly an Aeronca Champ. I loved landing it off airport. For years I used to fly to a small golf course in Farmington called JB Golf. It was created by a man who loved golf and flying. I was introduced to this strip by Jerry Hansen. He used to fly his 175 and then his Pacer in to this strip. I tagged along in my Champ. Well, time passed and Jerry wasn’t able to fly into JB any more. I built an RV-4 which I never could slow down adequately to land safely at JB. I really missed flying in to JB and that is one of the big reasons I sold my RV-4 and built my new plane; the Coyote. Today I was finally able to find time to clean up my golf clubs fly in to JB.
The owner loves to have airplanes fly in so if you’re a golfer and you have reasonable short/soft field skills you are welcome here. The strip is located just east of Stockton Metro Airport in central California. It is marked on the SFO sectional as J-B. It is listed as private but pilots with appropriate skills are welcome to land.
Here are a few pictures from my trip today.
