Farewell Fly to our local Delta's.

  • April 6, 2013 · 8:30 AM

 

"...WASHINGTON – Today, the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reached the decision that 149 federal contract towers will close beginning April 7 as part of the agency’s sequestration implementation plan..."

How about we make the rounds to our local friendly controllers one last time as class Delta airspace.

KFIT - KASH - KLWM - KBVY- KOWD - KORH - KFIT

Total round robin trip is 123nm....

At our first stop we can eat at Sandy's in Nashua, as an alternate for food, there's Joe's Landing at KLWM. (Joe's is a bit smaller though, but take your pick).

While at KASH, let's ask ground for a "Tour of the Tower".

 

KASH

I'd like to do a full stop landing, contact ground, taxi back and go to the next stop. Pick the ones you want or not.

 

 

If you're ambitious, feel free to add our friends in CT at KOXC-KDXR-KBDR-KHVN-KGON-KHFD. another 276 nm RT.

    btw nashua got a one month reprieve for 4 controllers paid with airport funds. 45000 or 1500 per day or about 30 per handling
    early not worth it

    Here's what I have. If you guys have made other plans, please let us know. Gary and Louise have Heidi riding with them. Chris and Billy D. are together IF Chris's intercom is looked at in time. Paula and Pete are on an adventure together. And I can only assume Drew and Brian are flying together. I still haven't heard from them. Thanks!

    Here's what our spreadsheet looks like. I spoke with some of you and see there have been changes. It appears we have 4 planes and 5 pax.
    If you are no longer attending and need to change your rsvp, please do so. (I know, a couple of us have to stay on here to help even when not going. So do as I ask, not as I do. ; )
    If anyone has already secured a ride, please let us know so I can help find seats for those remaining. Hope the weather cooperates and you all have a blast!
