Linden Airport is reached by turning down Wildcat Way off Route 1 and 9. When driving down Wildcat Way you will pass some warehouses on your right and the runway will be on your left. The road will bend to the right and you should turn left into the first parking lot you see. From there, head to the cream building with glass sliding doors. When you enter the building follow the signs for "lobby/operations."

The flight was very interesting and a real experience. The pilot also explained everything in detail. Any time. Unfortunately, the airport is very remote and can only be reached by car - no connection to public transport.
