One of the things that helps keep dues low is that all streets are county roads which the county allows us to taxi on...so, no street maintenance issues.

That's a big one right there,  I pay 100/quarter for Road Dues alone. 

The size of your community must help reduce the costs per lot pretty significantly as well.

Even though Bill sold his place, another property is just about to be offered for sale.  We've had two Mooney owners re-locate this year and I'm hoping replacement Mooney owners move in to keep the neighborhood "high class". :D

 

Perhaps you should consider changing the name to Mooney's Landing?

I tried, but the non-Mooney majority soundly beat my proposal into the turf!

The last three properties that have sold in our community never went on the market.  They sold word-of-mouth very quickly.  Right now fly-in property seems hot, but it was going pretty cheap during the great recession. :wacko:  Just like airplanes.

I think you live in a successful example.  They're trying to get one established locally, and it's been very slow.  In fact, one of the lots is selling for $13k.  They're just isn't much demand here.  The airport, on the other hand is doing well with a waiting list for hangars.

Where is the one locally that they are trying to establish.

Update:  a different property just came up for rent.  If anyone wanted to test the waters, renting in a fly-in community may be the way to go.

Disclaimer:  I have no financial interest in this property.

This one just came up FSBO.  Again, I have no connection with the sale.  It is in my neighborhood.

It was our plan all along to have the runway and facilities to ourselves.  Cheaper than building our own.  :P

We've been jerks for 22 years, but we've still got some really tenacious neighbors!  ;)

It looks like you taxi behind the houses along a mostly grass taxiway, it’s hard to tell from satellite pictures, how wide is the taxiway?  Looks like trees are both sides. How smooth is the runway/taxiways? Does it drain well?

There's more info on the web site.  The covenants will probably answer a lot of questions:  mallardslanding.us

Everyone is either on the runway, or has access to the runway via taxiways (easements over private property), or via the county maintained streets which we have county approval to taxi on.

The runway is presently turf, but the HOA has contracted to lay down a plastic product similar to Perfo (http://www.perfo.co.uk/airfields.html) which is about as close to paving as turf can get.

Message me if you have other questions, but why not fly in and take a look?  There's a pretty good Mexican restaurant less than a half mile west of the development we could have lunch.
