Well, the hyped up storm that began as February started, lived up to its prognostication. We're still trying to get rid of the piles of snow. That was enough for several winters to come. (We can only hope.)
There was some activity when clear skies returned. Kudos to CFI Wesley Chin, who provided us with a very informative Zoom on preflight and the traffic pattern. The response was outstanding as Wes was both interesting and very well prepared. We highly recommend that you tune in for this month's as even long time pilots can use a refresher.
The days are longer and the temperature is rising, so come on out and get back into the air. As more of us are getting vaccinated, travel will be a welcome activity this spring & summer. So if you need a refresher flight, call us for scheduling. And start looking at those destinations that had to be postponed.
Sunrise at 39N
Watchdog Layla oversees 39N. Some of the most beautiful scenes at Princeton Airport are sunrise and sunset. Here, Airport Manager Ken Nierenberg and his sidekick, Layla, checked out the clean runway after days of plowing and clearing the voluminous piles of snow. The end problem was "where to put the piles"?
Thanks for your cooperation during Winter Operations
- March is not free of snow!
- As a precaution, please start the airplane engine at low RPM so the oil can move around and lubricate. The most damage is done in the first start of the day.
- When the snow stops, make sure you clean off your airplane, as if it starts to melt and then refreezes, it difficult to clear.
- If you are planning to use your airplane and you need to be plowed out, please contact the front desk and we will put you on the list. Give us sufficient notice so Ken can do several aircraft at once while he's out plowing. If you're not imminently using your plane, we will eventually get to you.
- If you need a preheat, contact the office.
