putting aircraft back into it's tie down

Please do not taxi into any open “T” hangers (if applicable). Viking requires that pilots use the tow-bar to maneuver the airplane around the apron and into any tie-down areas. Pilots are NOT authorized to move aircraft into or out of any hanger. Plane should always be secured before pilot leaves aircraft unattended – or any reason or duration of time.

caution areas where hangar rash is most likely

  1. Anytime the aircraft are removed from the hanger. (Pilots are not allowed to handle aircraft into/out of the hanger).
  2. Taxing near the hanger. The concreate pad located in front of the main hanger. Please remain south of the East-to-West concrete expansion joint at all times. Please use tow-bar to maneuver the aircraft into a safe parking position or to turn the aircraft around. Do not taxi or park the aircraft facing the hanger doors at any time.
  3. Taxing to or from the Runway. The Taxiway is small positioned close to hangers. Usually parked automotive vehicles will also be found near taxiways.

What fuel load to expect and how to change it

C150: Expect fuel levels to be half tanks or better PA28: Expect fuel levels to be at the fuel tabs or better (37gallons or more)

If a desired fuel level is required please make note of this request in the reservation notes. We will do our best to accommodate.


Local Airspace Considerations

standard departure procedures

Gundy’s is an uncontrolled airport. Please use the CTAF and announce each position as stated in the FAR/AIM and published ACs.

Departing RWY17L: Left Traffic. Remain clear of Class “C” airspace at or below 2,000 ft. MSL. Contact Tulsa Departure and proceed as directed. Departing RWY35R: Left Traffic. Remain clear of Class “C” airspace at or below 2,000ft MSL. Contact Tulsa Departure and proceed as directed.

Please depart the traffic pattern at 45 degree angles.

RWY 17R and RWY 35L are not authorized in Viking Aircraft. (Grass fields RWYs).

best way to get flight following

Pilots will be able to pick up TUL ATIS (124.9) on the ground before departure. After departure and clear of the Traffic Pattern contact Tulsa Departure Control and make your request.

routine radio position reports

Caution: Gundy’s is the EAA chapter 10 headquarters. High volume of experimental and non-radio aircraft involved in and around the airport. All pilots are to follow the published uncontrolled field entry and exit procedures published in the current FAR/AIM and AC’s.

preferred IFR "gates" ATC wants you to file to

While we have arrival/departure gates, more often than not we are in a "direct and descending" configuration with all centers. This allows approach to send you direct to the first fix outside of our airspace on departure, and center to leave aircraft direct to the airport and descending. However, clearance delivery, and approach issuing IFR clearances will still issue the "Preferred departure routing" (PDR) so that we ensure you have at least the first fix outside TUL airspace before going on course. You're more likely to get the treasured "as filed" if you already have these in your flight plan.

Local Flight Planning Tips

noise sensitive areas

We do not have any published noise sensitive areas or procedures; however, the airport is surrounded by residential neighborhoods.

Run-up areas are located at each departure end. Stay at or above published TPA (RWY35-800AGL and RWY17-1000AGL at all times. Low approaches/Passes are not authorized.

Viking Aviation Policy: Night operations noise abatement: All night operations should be limited to mission critical. Please avoid unnecessary go-arounds, flybys, excessive engine run-ups, etc. Gundy’s Airport is surrounded by residential neighborhoods. Be considerate using your landing light during taxi operations.

local hazards

Please review O38 AF/D.

  1. Extreme Caution: Gundy’s is the EAA chapter 10 headquarters. High volume of experimental and non-radio aircraft involved in and around the airport. Non-radio equipped aircraft sometimes fly lower traffic patterns.
  2. Multiple Hangers located either side of the approach corridor to RWY 17L and 17R.
  3. RWY is 23 feet at narrowest point. Published 2600X26
  4. Public Road 25 feet from RWY35R and RWY35L. Low approaches are not authorized.
  5. Taxiways are grass/turf. Back-taxi hard surface RWY when able. Extreme caution should be used during inclement weather.
  6. Taxiways are unmarked.
  7. Airport Lighting is non-standard. Beacon is non-standard (not easily visible at night). Airport extremely difficult to locate during night operations (This is an understatement)
  8. Locals residents conduct control fire burns on airport. Caution smoke.
  9. Ultra-light activity involved in and around the airport
  10. Birds Activity involved in and around the airport
  11. Multiple towers near airport
  12. Taxing to the Viking Hanger
  13. Turning the aircraft around on the RWY (180 turn). RWY width is small and caution must be used to execute a tight turn-about. Were possible please use the paved RWY end turn-abouts.

obstructions

Trees, Hangers, Towers, and Road 25’ from RWY35 crossing vehicle traffic do not stop. Extreme caution is should be exercised for passing road traffic. Visibility limited at RWY ends due to runway sloping.

nearby special use airspace

Tulsa Class “C” Airspace at 2300ft MSL over lying airport.

how to easily identify boundaries of overlying or nearby airspace

Remain east of airport at all times except for TIGHT Left Traffic for RWY35.

air carrier arrival paths to be avoided

Tulsa International approach/departure corridors are the extended centerlines of All TUL RWYS.

unique weather challenges / microclimates

Gundy’s is within 3nm of TUL international. Use TUL ATIS for Winds and Weather. Expect wind shift due to heavy tree lines surrounding Gundy’s Airport. Expect air turbulence landing RWY17 due to buildings. Expect air turbulence landing RWY35 due to large lake in final approach path– differential ground heating

local terrain considerations

Gundy’s has a 2600ft runway with surrounding tree lines, powerlines, close proximity hangers and buildings.

best airports to visit in the area

KTUL, KRVS, KGCM, H66, 3O9

best sights from the air

local laws / rules not listed on the charts

Do not fly at or below 1000ft AGL within 2nm radius of Oologah Dam and Power plant.

density altitude considerations

High humidity and temps during the summer months. Recommend short-field performance operations.

nearby stadiums

What does the tower want you to do before you call ready for takeoff?

Standard uncontrolled position reports are required via the CTAF

noise abatement procedures

We do not have any published noise sensitive areas or procedures; however, the airport is surrounded by residential neighborhoods.

Run-up areas are located at each departure end. Stay at or above published TPA (RWY35-800AGL and RWY17-1000AGL at all times. Low approaches/Passes are not authorized.

traffic pattern altitude

All traffic patterns are to the LEFT. Remain within 1/2nm of airport at all times. 800ft AGL (RWY35) or 1000ft (RWY17)

preferred pattern entries

--Straight in approaches are approved; however, not recommend. (Use extreme caution due to non-radio equipped aircraft).

--RWY 35. Enter via the extended Left Downwind Leg. To avoiding the Tulsa Class “C” airspace inter-circle cut the corner of the downwind-to-base corner.

--RWY 17. Enter mid-field Left Downwind to RWY17. Standard.

airport restrictions

Low approaches are not authorized. There are no published instrument approaches into the airfield. If flying IFR be familiar with Special VFR operations.
