Catalina Island is a pretty neat place to fly to. The runway has a slope at
both ends which meets in the middle. If you are at the 04 end of the runway,
you cannot see traffic which may be taking the 22 end. Another hazard is the
location itself. It sits in a cliff and has a real good drop off at each
end. See the picture at Airnav: http://www.airnav.com/airport/KAVX

No need for a VASI. You will know if your too low.

I've always wanted to fly in there.
How was it?
I heard the runway had cracks/potholes.
How about the length? No problem for a mouse?

If anybody is flying out west you have to fly out Catalina Island off
the coast of southern CA. It is a island with a airport on top of its
small mountains. It is 1600msl with a great view and wild Buffalo on
the island. I flew a TBM700 in there on Monday with my family. I
little
to long of of a trip in my Sundowner from Orlando. The aiport is AVX.
