Great destination, unusual setting

Located on an island just east of downtown Knoxville (as the name implies), DKX is always a pleasure to visit. It is an active field - there is almost always some air traffic in the pattern. Self service fuel is quite inexpensive. Overnight fee for one night waived with fuel purchase. It is always a treat to visit this airport. We've been there several times since 2008.

Matthews Field Operational Restrictions

Other than a declared emergency, owner's written permission in the form of a fully executed general liability waiver executed by pilot and spouse, witnessed by a Notary Public required PRIOR TO LANDING! No exceptions! Failure to adhere to this request will result in aircraft being impounded and arrest and prosecution of the pilot and crew for criminal trespass. Please bear in mind if you land on my property without my permission I am under absolutely no legal obligation whatsoever to allow you to fly back off my property. Consider yourself warned.

Memphis Airport - an okay place.

Spent three hour layover at Memphis International Airport - Home of FEDEX. This was a really simple place to navigate and, for an airport, it was immaculate. I have seldom seen such shiny floors. Restrooms were all clean and well serviced. I have heard lots of negative things about Memphis so I was not looking forward to this stop. Fortunately they were mostly myths. The only real negatives were the Delta employees. Everyone to the man seemed to have a chip on their shoulder. Snippy to the point of RUDE. But...that was only Delta employees. Everyone else was unusually polite and friendly. Shopping was pretty good for an airport and there were many varieties of food vendors. All in all, not a bad stop...next time I will fly someone other than Delta.

A fun place to fly, GREAT FBO! Had a starting problem and the local mechanic dropped everything he was doing to help, got plane started so I could go home...

Great Little Airport

As you would expect commercial flights are somewhat limited but always within short jumps to major connectors.

The Airport itself is friendly, clean and offers good amenities for those flying in an out.

Private aviators will find great service from TACair with easy and covered access to tarmac.

It's nice to fly from a place where you can relax and not rush.

re: '7TN5' differs code

Reply to @rrobledo: thanks -- moving the code over. Can't find a code for this airport, so maybe it's closed.
