Runway Reconstruction Beginning September 25
Runway reconstruction work is tentatively scheduled to start October 4 and continue into early November. FLASH-the contractor now states he will be able to begin work as early as Monday, September 25!!
The runway will be closed for 3 hours between now and the 25th so that the contractor can test equipment on a strip of runway pavement. The exact date is not known but Dan Jensen will give as much advance notice as possible when the date and time IS known.
The most current updates to the project appear on at the County's Airport Webpage under "Airport News", and accessible via the links there. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of these pages for the most current information.
A special guest for October-Max Trescott, National CFI of the Year.
Max was the 2008 National CFI of the Year and is well-known for his very helpful training guides for learning how to use many of the various electronic flight tools. He's also the host of two podcasts; the AvGeeks podcast, and the Aviation News Talk podcast, and is an occasional visitor to Gnoss Field in his role as a Cirrus instructor and purchase advisor, and CFI.
Max will be taking a very short break from his busy instructing schedule to join us on October 11, so make plans to be there for his presentation. Breakfast starts at 9:00 a.m. in the Scanlon Aviation hangar, and Max's presentation will start at 10:00 a.m..
