Laughlin/Bullhead City

Laughlin/Bullhead City

I'll be flying my C-150 (VFR) into Bullhead City AZ this weekend (for a class, really). I've never been there, so any tips & suggestions on approach/landing/departures, etc. Thanks.

Re: Laughlin/Bullhead City

You didn't say where you will be flying from but no matter, I would suggest you plan to get here before noon. The winds tend to get real choppy due to thermal convection around that time. Outside of that its a nice runway and the tower is usually courteous. Do your normal approach procedures and call in at 10-15 out. If your coming from the north or south you will likely get a straight in. If from the east they will likely have you cross over midfield to downwind left or right. Same with approach from west (except for the cross midfield part). Stay between the the smokestacks and the river (lots of room). Piece of cake. Enjoy your stay! Caution in the casinos. Be sure to stash some cash for fuel home.

I came in from the south, and you're right, the tower was real nice, the approach simple, and its a nice long runway. Long taxi to the tie downs, though! I usually use flight following when doing these "long" cross county flights (long for a 150, it was 2 hrs) and its fun when talking to LA center for flight following. This time the controller said "say again your type aicraft?" I told him and he said, "Oh, you'll be with me for quite a while then!"

Re: Laughlin/Bullhead City

An associate asked me to try and get good ticket rates to fly to Laughlin, NV.  I'm having a hard time finding an airline that flies into that airport.  What would you suggest?  I'm not familiar with that area so any help about nearest city and/or best airline from Raleigh/Durham airport in North Carolina?

Re: Laughlin/Bullhead City

Coming from Raleigh/Durham will be a snap if you come into Las Vegas and then take the shuttle (Van) down to Laughlin/Bullhead City.  The shuttle makes several trips a day, and has an early morning return.  You can check the Bullhead City directory and get the shuttle name.  I'm sorry I don't have the number,  but have used the service numerous times this past year making the same trip in reverse order.
