  • Takeoff and landing training exercise that when the sound is terrific and practice things hanging, g, fainting or is a tough exercise. Movies such as this base activity. Wow on the activity.

  • You can see almost daily arrival and departure of aircraft. Look is a propeller-driven aircraft, but they would never get bored. Gathered all kinds of airplanes Aviation Festival in May every year, and is a sight to see. See also the flight of the impulse, crowded with hordes of sightseers.

  • Flight of the impulse, from early in the morning. Take the shuttle bus from the train station and arrived at the base. The first impression was "I did". Until the afternoon flight, just wait! Wait! But wait there is no way. You can do enough goodies for cooking, or eating. But the grounds not usually so precious time. Narrow, so waiting is the impulse. Not a thing and wait in Hamamatsu. So the impulse pictures were only during the flight. But the flight is really great. Nothing short of superhuman.
