D2 AERO Lake Havasu City Airport (HII) By Brad Irwin Photos by Mark Frey
ocated just six miles north of beautiful Lake Havasu City, is one of the most accommodating and friendly FBOs that I have ever flown to. I met these nice folks when I flew to Arizona last year to get my seaplane rating with Lake Havasu Seaplanes (PilotMag May/June 2009). When we decided to create this new FBO Spotlight section in PilotMag, I knew we had to feature D2 Aero and get the word out to pilots looking for somewhere to fly that was interesting and a whole lot of fun.

Home to the world famous London Bridge, Lake Havasu is a paradise for water lovers and desert lovers alike. The crystal clear water and sunny skies of Lake Havasu offer the perfect environment for any getaway. And, when you take a trip by plane somewhere that you’ve never been before, it’s always nice to have the help and support of a great FBO to make the trip more enjoyable. That’s exactly what I found at D2 Aero. Owner - Darin Craig; general manager Birgit Van Bynen; and line manager - Lee
Vandaalwyk, have done a great job creating an FBO that will treat you like royalty and provide you with fantastic service and a very pleasant experience. I was amazed when I got to Lake Havasu, how many things there were to actually do there. From renting a house boat or jet skis to seaplane rides, bi-plane rides, helicopter rides, golf, or just flying your plane over the three lakes in the area – Lake Havasu, Lake Mojave, and Lake Mead. That was the flight of a lifetime.
