My name is Chuck Vergauwen and I will be visiting Israel from Dec. 27 to Jan. 6. I am a general aviation pilot and would like to log a landing at LLMZ since it is the lowest general aviation airport in the world. I am an instrument rated private pilot with 350 hours.

Any help with attaining this unique goal would be greatly appreciated.
