Default Relocating to Indianapolis Northern Suburbs

My wife and I plan to relocate to the Northern suburbs of Indy in the next 12 to 16 months when I retire. Of course now the important question is weíre to base my RV6 that I have been flying for 13 years. Iím looking for suggestions on airports with hanger space and a good community of aviators, especially ones with RVís or other Homebuiltís. Iím currently on a private grass strip so Iím amenable to them or paved. Any leads/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Default not sure

Not sure about the Indy local area but I live about 60 SE of Indy Andy hangars are few and far between.

Start getting your name on the wait lists...
