Default Tie Down\FBO Recommendation KJYO?

Taking RV10 to Leesburg (KJYO) for the first time. My wife and I are hoping to fly up to see children later this week.

Any recommendations for best place to tie down?

Default JYO

Sent you a PM.

Make sure you take the online course for the WDC SFRA. It is mandatory for operating into JYO. Also become very familiar with the Leesburg Maneuvering Area (LMA).

I've flown there a few times and plan to again over Thanksgiving. Even though it's in the DC SFRA, it's dirt simple. In a nutshell, just take the most direct route in/out from the west while the transponder is set to their particular code. You can't go in or out of there with 1200.

As for tie down, there are a ton of tie down spots along the runway, but many are taken by aircraft based there. Don't tie down on a spot with a storage box sitting there even if it's otherwise empty.
