Princeton Airport News – October 2015

jack-o-lantern-2.jpg

We continue to enjoy wonderful weather with rain finally coming into the forecast.  We hope you have enjoyed the combination of good weather and low fuel prices.  Hopefully, this makes up for some of the long periods of bad weather and high fuel prices.
Our participation in the Montgomery FunFest was very well received.  Our staff worked very hard to make sure everything went smoothly, and rave reviews have come to us from the participants.  Attendees were exposed to the wonderful world of aviation and 39N. We have worked hard to get along with our neighbors – now they realize that we are an important part of the community.
Fall is a great time to fly – enjoy.
Happy Halloween.
A rousing success – everyone had a great time.  It was a lovely day until a wind kicked up about 3:30 with some raindrops.  One newspaper reported that between 10 and 15000 attended – that’s huge.  It was well organized, something for everyone.  A great time was had by all.

I have discussed before in this column, the importance of getting a good weather briefing from Flight Service before taking a flight.  Performing a thorough pre-flight, and fuel calculation, and particularly if you have a passenger, and baggage, a weight and balance calculation.  (I have seen a golf foursome show up at a Cessna 172, each with one of those huge  Slazenger bags.  The pilot trying o explain that they need to are clubs if they expected  get of the ground safely.

The challenge for all pilots is to take that Go-No Go decision to attempt the flight with the current and forecast weather, time of day, the importance of getting somewhere, the airplane’s capabilities, and the state of the pilot’s physical and mental state. A lot of items to consider!

Memories of DIck Nierenberg
Double or Nothing?
How many of you walked in to Dick’s office to pay a bill and he would ask, “Are you a gambling man?”  Then he would take out a coin from his desk and offer you “double or nothing”.  This meant if you won, you didn’t have to pay your bill, however if you lost, you had to pay double.
Dick was not a gambler!  When Atlantic City offered gambling, he went once for an hour and once for a business meeting.  He didn’t play cards nor any other form of risk games.
Very early in the days at Kupper, one very cold, snowy day in February, the representative from Cessna came to have our company commit to its obligation as a Cessna dealer – one new airplanes during the calendar year.  Business is really slow, as it is in February.  Dick bantered back and forth with the rep trying to delay this ordeal.  Finally, he offered the Cessna rep, “Double or nothing?”  If Dick won, we wouldn’t have to buy a plane, however if Dick lost, we would have to purchase two.  The rep turned pale, and Naomi was aghast, as she was well aware of the bank balance.
He got out a coin and let the rep call it. Dick lost, and we had to buy two planes.  He offered to do it again, however the rep politely declined and made us promise not to tell Cessna.  We did buy the planes.
