Quiet GA Spotting Day @KARR

Why, hello there person who clicked on this topic!

Welcome to my latest spotting topic, and this time I have got a new airport and a whole bunch of new planes that I took photos of. That airport is KARR, or Aurora Municipal Airport just outside of Chicago, and is the same place I do my flight training. So, after my flight training for today I decided to spend an hour or so spotting, and while it wasn’t as busy due to the high winds, there was still a good amount of traffic to spot!

First up we have this Piper PA-31 which had just completed some pattern-work for the day at the airport:

Secondly, we have this Cessna 350 underneath the FBO facility preparing for its next flight:

Alongside the 350 is this Cessna Citation:

Arriving in after some flying over Northern Illinois is this other Piper PA-31:

And now a side-by-side picture of the two Piper’s (aircraft on the left is from the first image while the right one is from previous one)

Taxiing across Runway 9/27 we have this Piper PA-28:

Following shortly behind that we have this Vans RV-7 preparing to exit the runway:

Sitting on the ramp we then have this Cessna 172:

Then we have this Beechcraft Bonanza shortly after arrival:

And finally we have this Dassault Falcon 50 sitting at the ramp after arriving a few days prior:

Ooh love those pictures! Thanks for making my day a bit better by showing them lol.

Love that PA-31 a lot, that beige doctor killer is cool too, can’t decide which shot between those is really my favorite.

Cant wait for more!

Glad you liked them! Don’t worry, there are plenty more coming, as I intend to come early or stay late to all my flying lessons which are all here, and which I do 2-3 a month. So maybe I won’t do all my sessions, but most definitely a compilation.

What if I were to, hypothetically, avoid doing that and instead go visit KARR again and take more pictures of all the Cessna 172’s that I want


Oh no don’t make him angry… :cold_sweat:


I have a question do you get Xojet at KARR?

Occasionally, there is probably 1-2 Netjets / XoJet flights out of there every week
