Hello aviators today’s trip is to Pyper Cub Cafe in Williston Florida! This restaurant is located inside Williston Municipal airport.

Interesting Information

Williston Municipal Airport (X60) is the former Montbrook Army Air Field for WWII B-17, B-24 and B-25 bombers. Now, one will find an efficient airport surrounded by a now pristine 2,000+acre industrial park that is the future economic engine for the city.

An Automated Weather Observation Station (AWOS) was recently installed and has been approved by the FAA and has been formally commissioned. For current weather conditions, the AWOS assigned frequency is 118.425 and the telephone access number is 352-528-9949.

Restaurant Information

The Pyper Kub serves breakfast (all day) and lunch. Tables are available inside or outside on Dave’s Deck (where you will usually find Dave), with a view of the runways. The Pyper Kub is located just outside main gate of the airport where you can watch your plane being refueled while you have lunch.
The Pyper Kub’s menu includes strip steaks, wings, shrimp, fish, as well as two sizes of hamburgers and hot dogs.

Taxi up, eat lunch and watch your plane being fueled and your friends arrive.
