Princeton Airport News – June 2016

Summer is almost here, so now is the time to get off the couch and take to the air – so fly for breakfast in New York; go for a day trip to Block island or Tangier Island; and go swimming at the beach by flying to Ocean City.   You can even visit the family and say you cannot stay long because of “aviation ” things. Just enjoy the longer days and summer weather.  FLY!!!

Give Dad a day to remember…
Take him flying.
Give him Introductory Flying Lesson.
Take him flying to a restaurant at some far off airport.
Give him flying lessons.
How about fuel for his favorite aircraft?
Just give him a great day.
SUNDAY, JUNE 19th.

From the Right Seat
Assistant Chief Pilot – Peter Rafle
 
I was thinking about the past fifty two and a half years of flying, and what I loved most and least about aviation. My list of the least loved aspects is very short. Simply put, I just decided to avoid those as best I can, and devote myself to the good times. The early best moment was the first solo at Baron Field near Pensacola. On a cold February day, a Beech T-34B, and an instructor who was not looking forward to standing on a deserted airfield while his “Nugget” student did three takeoffs and landings.
“Make it quick!” was all he said. Back at Saufley Field, I went through the traditional cutting of my tie to mark this significant point on my path to become a Naval Aviator.

NEW NEWS About ADS-B
WHY WAIT – Get free traffic & weather.
The FAA has mandated that all airplanes will be required to have ADS-B by 2020.  This equipment will provide radar centers more information for better traffic flow, plus many other benefits.
Garmin has just announced its new GTX 335 & 345 which is now available.  We have had a very positive response to this news and people are scheduling their upgrade.
Price:  “Out” – start $3495 installed.
           “In & Out” – start $4995 installed.
Check the Garmin website for more information: http://ads-b.garmin.com/en-US
ADSB solutions for G-1000 approved  ( see Jeff or Ken)
If you need assistance, please speak with Ken 609-731-4628.
NOTE: Just completed the 20th ADSB installation and everyone states why the extra safety with traffic is awesome and they will never fly without it again.
