All pilots and aircraft welcome. Byrd's features two grass runways on 800 private acres surrounded by national forest. Our primary 1900' strip is suitable for many single-engine airplanes, while our secondary 1000' runway is dedicated to powered parachutes and trikes. Pilots are encouraged to monitor channel 122.8. (123.45 during fly-in gatherings).
Bring gear for non-flying activities including fly fishing, canoeing, trail riding, waterfall hikes, and campfire cookouts. Snacks, drinks, ice and sandwiches are available at Byrd's on-site store. Restaurant dining is nearby at the Oark Cafe. Aviation fuel is available nearby at the Ozark (7M5) and Clarksville (H35) municipal airports. Ethanol-free fuel for Light Sport Aircraft is available locally at Turner Bend and the Oark General Store. A courtesy vehicle can be arranged by calling ahead. Call us at 479-667-4066 or 479-667-4199
