  Holy Moly!! What an experience getting into 1A5! The airfield is LITERALLY dropped in the middle of a mountain range! Kinda breathtaking, but then you say to yourself, "I've got to land this thing!!" For the uninitiated, as I was, you'll end up making an approach that's higher than you've done before, because, if you're on an IFR flight plan, they keep you at 7, 200 ft until you're almost on top of the airport. Then you have to get into the pattern to land and all quadrants are surrounded by these mountain peaks! Exhilarating and beautiful...But a REAL challenge. The people at the airport couldn't have been nicer and VERY helpful. I can now say that I did it!!

  Beautiful terminal and setting in a valley. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Especially a nice guy at the front desk named Brian who bought me a soda with money right out of his wallet!😳😄👍

  Great people at a gorgeous FBO!!! Very helpful with landing and departure tips. They gladly loaned us a courtesy car to get lunch, and we even squeezed in an antique store stop for the ladies. Franklin is a great town for a getaway (which we have done on other occasions). The airport is a good training ground for mountain flying. This was our second trip into Franklin by air. We'll be back for more.
