Default Airports that have oxygen

Last year while motor gliding the western states I had trouble finding airports that can fill my oxygen bottle. I did get fills at Ely, Minden, and Inyokern. Do you know of places that can help out a visiting pilot?

Put a HUGE cylinder in your Phoenix! I use a CFFC-048 carbon fiber wrapped, 48 cf at 2200 psi,
19.5" x 6.8", and 6.4lb. I mounted it in the baggage compartment on the bulkhead about 2.5'
behind the pilot. From Mountain High.

You might be able to fill at Parowan (they have cart), and I think I saw an oxygen cart at
Richfield, UT. Rifle, CO, might have it, or you may be able to get a fill from Schmulik
Dimenstein, the local glider pilot that maintains his own cylinders in a hangar there.

if you are an AOPA member, you can try using the facility directory search function he https://www.aopa.org/destinations/

I typed in "Nevada, USA", checked the "public use" and "oxygen" boxes and when I hit search I got a map of Nevada showing airports listing oxygen services. I would call ahead to check.

How about a simple search for medical O2? Might be easier and cheaper...could be a medical supply house or similar...

This is a vexing problem and we are working on a database of airports with confirmed oxygen service. Part of the problem too is that there is no one available at the FBO to fill if it’s a weekend and the people behind the counter really don’t know at most FBOs. Best to try an industrial gas supplier like Linde rather than medical. Most medical O2 houses require a prescription....

A two bottle cascade is a great option at the hangar too....

Parowan Aero Services FBO used to have a Oxygen recompressor to top up those high PSI composite bottles, and a water bath to keep the bottle cool while doing that.

It has been my experience that Medical Oxygen requires a prescription.

Most Welding Gas supply businesses have ABO Aviators breathing Oxygen no prescription required and can fill a bottle.
