Alton Bay Ice Port visit

  • Feb 18, 2012 · 9:00 AM
  • B18
DATE CHANGE A WEEK....PLEASE NOTE, WE MIGHT NOT HAVE ENOUGH SEATS FOR PAXS. STAY TUNED!

AT this time, not sure if Alton Bay Iceport will be open or not, but let's get it on the books.

Hotline number is 603-[masked]

Here's a rare opportunity to land on an ice port. Is it fun and exciting? Ask Peter Kettle, he made his first last year and the smile stayed until spring :-)

Food is also there and the place can get busy.

B18 is the ICAO. Might not find it on your GPS.

    This is one of those " gotta do this". Like the NYC Corridor, or flying into OshKosh. A real live Iceport within 1/2 hr. we had a great time and a few got their first taste of an ice landing. Congrats!

    This flight was a lot of fun. It was windy and a bit bumpy but not too difficult.

    Just Spoke with Paul up at Alton Bay...ice is 10-12 inches thick....suppose to be down in the 20s tonight so he said it will be good to go for tomorrow...had a couple guys on there today and had no problem......

    Sam, as of yesterday, the ice was still perfect. I'll check again this afternoon and tomorrow morning. An alternate is a great idea. We should always have one when going to B18. I'll work on it. LCI has no food, but is close by. Maybe back to Nashua would be a smart flight. Ideas?

    If Alton Bay is closed still, Kaitlin and I were thinking on doing brunch at Sanford.
