Welcome to the Year 2022!
Thank you everyone for being supportive throughout the years, especially the past year with the COVID times. We appreciate your business and we look forward to more CAVU (ceilings and visibilities unlimited) Days!
While the temperatures have been milder this winter, we have been able to do lots of flying. If snow comes back to Princeton, please give us a call ahead of time to be plowed out in time. Additionally, please request your fuel needs as soon as possible so we can be sure to have you fueled when you need. New merchandise is available at the FBO, stop in and check it out. We want to wish Nick and Bryce good luck with their future endeavors as they leave us and move forward in their careers.
Something to look forward to - Sun and Fun is coming up April 5th-10th! There may be a group flying down if the situation permits. Stay tuned as details will come.
Goodbye 2021, Hello 2022!
We had a year full of flying, despite the challenges of the world. Taking time to come to the airport is often referred to as people's favorite part of the day. To all those who accomplished big milestones in their aviation careers, congratulations. To those who are working on bigger and better things for 2022, we are excited to be a part of it. And for those who are simply enjoying the ride (quite literally), that's ultimately what it's all about. Having fun and flying planes. We would like to wish you and your family a happy and healthy new year!
8 Bags for Donations
Thank you everyone for donating gifts for the children in need. We collected 8 contractor bags of toys for the Mercer County Social Services. We hope things improve with COVID this next year and are able to welcome Santa back to 39N on Christmas Eve.

Winter Operations and Snow Removal
As a precaution, please start your airplane engine at a low RPM so the oil can circulate and lubricate. The most damage is done on the first start of the day.
As always, the runway and taxi way will be cleared, but when it comes to your hanger we ask that you please let us know in advance that you want to be plowed out.
(Now that Ken has said this, hopefully it will not snow.)
You can fly in ALL kinds of weather... thanks to our fully certified Garmin Flight Simulator.

As we welcome the New Year we would like to take time to say good luck to both Nick Pengue and Bryce Willus. They will be moving on from the Princeton Airport, and they will be missed. Nick started his training with us and then worked as a lineman and flight coordinator and eventually became a CFI. We will miss him as a CFI, but wish him luck with his future endeavors. As for Bryce, he made a true impact as a flight coordinator and lineman. We will miss Bryce behind the counter and also wish him good luck with his future.
New Merchandise Has Arrived!
If you haven't already, come stop in the FBO and check out our awesome new additions to the Princeton Airport merchandise. We have hats, sweatshirts, and T-shirts for sale, as well as mugs! The mugs come in 11oz and 15oz sizes.
Supply Chain Issues
The supply chain is affecting everyone, including us here at the airport. If you are looking to order any avionics or parts for your planes, anticipate delays in shipping and processing. Ken has a better idea in terms of specific parts and delays.
Times are so hard and delivery is so slow, we have resorted to using Layla as delivery.

Another year has begun! It has been two years of the covid pandemic. Each of our lives has been changed and affected by personal distance rules, vaccinations and boosters. We are hoping that this new year will bring some relief from the infection rates as more people throughout the world get vaccinated.
