ADDISON AIRPORT (KADS) Cavanaugh Flight Museum

AEROESTATES AIRPORT (T25) “Come on down or up, land and taxi to the end of one of two taxiways on the northeast corner of the airport. You can park there and walk over to Cottons Corner. They have really good BBQ, Ribs, Burgers etc. Outdoor seating area as well. We also have Texas’s one and only seaplane base. Float plane dock and ramp if you want to taxi up out of the water. A little farther from the water, but with notice I can meet you at the lake. Or you can taxi to my hangar and I’ll give you a ride to the store. If anyone asks questions (which I doubt) it’s a public use airport and if your here from this invite you’re my guest.
