Directions

Go north of Georgetown on I35 and take exit 268. Go 1 mile north on the I35 frontage road to FM 972. Turn right on FM 972 and go 1.33 miles to CR 141. Turn right on CR 141 and go 0.7 miles to the entrance at 655 CR 141. Look for a metal framed sign with Albrecht on it. Turn right onto the dirt road and go 0.37 miles down the dirt road, going past the house on the right. Continue past the tree line and the field will be around the left hand turn and at the end of the road.

Note: To use driving directions on a GPS, use 655 CR 141, Georgetown as the destination. This will take you to the start of the dirt road to the field. Using GPS coordinates without a street address will lead you off down a private road on the opposite side of the entrance to our field.

GPS Coordinates

30 degrees, 43.013 minutes North

Elevation: 810 feet msl 
Bearing from flying field to Georgetown airport: 229.0 degrees

CALL THE GEORGETOWN TOWER!

Since our field is located just inside of the 5 mile limit from the Georgetown airport, the first person at the field must call the Georgetown Control Tower at 512-868-3580 to let them know the field is active for the day. There is no need to call at the end of the day, the field will be considered closed at dusk. Tower contact info is posted at the field. As always, play nice and watch out for full scale aircraft and stay below 400ft!
