Does anyone know the pilot owner of the DA62 at KOWD?

And any idea if they have landed out at Katama on the Vineyard?

Can't answer your first question, but last month we landed our DA62 at the main airport KMVY on Martha's Vineyard for our first visit to the island. While there we took the bus over to Katama 1B2 airport to check it out, and met the airport manager as well as the operator of the Waco biplane giving flight seeing tours.

I would have no concern landing a Diamond twin on the longest grass runway 3700 feet at Katama -- it was in pretty good shape. You can even taxi to the a special parking lot at Katama for direct beach access. The have avgas only; no JetA.

Katama is awesome. I have landed there twice. As Dave says, there is a grass area right by the beach so you just get out, walk across the road and you are at the beach. After beach time, jump back in the plane and taxi up to the "FBO" and have a wonderful late lunch at the restaurant, which is one of the better airport restaurants I have been to.
