12/30/2011 - Great airport to practice your high altitude t/o landing skills on well maintained, flat 5850' runway at 6750' altitude. Getting up there will visually freak you out if you're not used to mountain flying you see nothing but mountains within gliding distance, but good for building pilot confidence. Barnstormer is a great cafe right there on the airport. Hang around long enough you you can see lots of interesting stuff land at a/p including Forest Service a/c with smoke jumpers loading for practice jumps in the area and military pilots flying airbase flight club aircraft in for a quick breakfast/lunch at the Barnstormer. Two blocks south is Hwy 18 easy to make it into Big Bear City on transit system 3 miles to west. Best flying waether is late winter/early spring or fall. If you go during the summer, make sure you know what you're doing since it will be possible to land, but you may not be able to take-off due to desnity altitude issues. - Submitted by Ken

9/7/2010 - Actually the Barnstorm restaurant is great for breakfast and for lunch. Try the Crab Cakes Benedict and enjoy the view of other pilots flying in and out. Highly recommended. Pretty well cheapest 100LL in the area too. - Submitted by Maris

6/8/2002 - 6/6/02 - great vacation place. We rented a house for a week, very reasonable rentals available. Plenty of things to do. The Village shopping, water slide, mountain slide, boat rentals. The airport was friendly and easy to fly into. Car rentals on field, or Enterprise. Big Bear Chamber helpful. Shauna & Donald, Samoa Airport B&B Inkeepers.

The Big Bear Mountains from the north with Lucerne Valley over 4000ft below. The typical approach is through the pass to the left of this view. - Uploaded by sstolarik

Flying through the pass at 10,000ft to enter the Big Bear traffic pattern from the East. Few airports have such a grand entrance. - Uploaded by
