  Great airport! Free popcorn, ice cream in the freezer (home-made), nice lounge area, bathroom with shower, courtesy car and cheap fuel to boot! I met some friendly local pilots who fueled up before I did and then drove over in their van as I was finishing up and asked if we needed any help or a ride. Clearly Clare is the place to stop in central MI.

  Not a lot of service. It is generally not staffed. But the fuel price is the best around. I routinely stop on my way to 4Y4 (Lakes of the North) and top all the tanks. Tankering all I can back to TDZ. They have a courtesy van to go in to town. The facility is clean with snacks and water. I save enough on fuel in the Aztec, that I can drive in to town and have dinner with the family at the Doherty hotel! A great stop for Lunch or Dinner.

  First time into Clare Municipal. I was in on a business trip to talk to a client in a nearby town about Medicare. I was able to use the courtesy car, which is provided by the airport association. It was clean and well maintained. I fly into a lot of airports in Michigan.. This one is well within the top ten. Clean and spacious FBO. They have tie down ropes and chokes available. They even have a pair of work gloves at the self-serve fuel pumps...Where the gas is cheap. I talked with Gary for a moment...Nice guy. On the way back, I stopped at Cops and Doughnuts. Got a picture of a Clare City Cop standing out front. Inside the help are known as inmate and dressed in orange T's. They have a restaurant next door too. Ya..Gotta go. Great airport and a great little town. Stop here for gas and grub.

  This is a great airport! Clean, Friendly and helpful. We flew on our way home from a long weekend North of Clare. We were able to go to town for lunch. The airport and the town are top notch. We recommend stopping by for a visit. You will not regret it!

  An unexpected stop found low fuel prices and a small well equipped FBO attended by a very friendly and welcoming manager. Crew car, ice cream and popcorn; how can you miss!!
From Kevin Pentoney on 08-Jul-2016

  Clean. Low fuel price. Great airport manager who is often present. Courtesy car. Shower. Ice cream. Everything I need and more right in the middle of the state. Great fuel stop.

  June 17, 2016 we were here 10 years ago on our way to upstate New York for my high school reunion. I am happy to report the service, fuel prices and free ice cream are still in place. :)
From Jim Gorman on 30-Mar-2016

  Some of the lowest price gas in the state. Nobody was home at the terminal on Easter Sunday, but there was free ice cream in the freezer. Free water in the fridge and they left the keys to the courtesy car on the counter! That's trust and hospitality. Thank you, 48D! I'll be back.
From Wayne Kieselbach on 27-Feb-2016

  48D is everything a small town airport should be - it harkens back to the days when flying was fun and friendly. It is simply a great place to visit. It is attended normal business hours by a great airport manager. There is ice cream in the freezer and cones and usually cookies and coffee. There is a free, well maintained loaner car for a drive into town for a great breakfast or lunch at the Mulberry cafe or a great dinner at the Doherty Hotel. The avgas prices are among the lowest in Michigan. The city of Clare is a great small town with a number of interesting shops on the main street and a donut shop owned by the some of the local constabulary called "Cops and Donuts." I mean what more could you ask for!? It's a great place to fly to!
From M Mills on 28-Nov-2015

  Great fuel$, thanks to Clare for providing a great apt.
From Michael Bush on 23-Nov-2015

  You'll come first for the good fuel price, but you'll come back for the outstanding facility. This must be the most hospitable unattended field I've ever visited. The only drawback at Clare is that there is no one to thank, which is why I'm posting here!
From Jerry Killeen on 16-Aug-2015

  I have been here many times especially for the good fuel prices. The courtesy car, Jay's Sporting Goods, nice facilities all make this a welcome place to stop. Oh! and the Amish people are an added attraction. Thanks Clare Municipal.
From George Steed on 08-Aug-2015

  Of 14 FBOs on a cross-country trip, this was by far the best. Not the largest, flashiest, or most commercial, just the best. The gas price was the lowest in Michigan, when we called inbound at 20 miles we were greeted with wind info and a runway recommendation, there was a huge gas price sign leading you to the pumps, there was cold water in a little fridge by the pumps, we had a free ice cream sundae in the lounge, and Gary (FBO Mgr) gave us a ride to town. We stayed in the Doherty, a historic hotel in the center of Michigan. Great food and a fun, small-town downtown. I would go out of my way to stop here again.
From Kevin Mannon on 28-Jul-2015

  Stopped in on way to and from OSH. Picked 48D for the outstanding fuel prices and was very happy to find a beautifully maintained airport and FBO. Manager went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. Will plan on a longer stop next year and take the courtesy car into town for a good lunch before our final leg into OSH. Highly recommended.
