Landing On Old Orchard Beach? 11-13-17: CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE WEBSITE On October 1st, 2017 (last October), there was a fly-in at Old Orchard beach. The whole event is said to be organized by a 15 year old student.  By the looks of the poster, they are planning on doing it again in 2018. "Thousands of people lined Old Orchard Beach on Sunday afternoon to watch 15 small planes descend from the sky and land on the sand, much like aviator Charles Lindbergh did 90 years ago. After taking off from Biddeford Municipal Airport a few miles to the west, the parade of planes circled to the east and then came in from the north to land on the beach under cloudless skies. Organizers estimated that between 5,700 and 6,300 people attended, standing 20 feet deep along 3,500 feet of barrier fencing set up to keep them off the landing strip."

KC-46A Pegasus at Pease Air National Guard
12-06-17: Although the delivery of the KC-46A tankers has been delayed, recent publications are now talking about potential delivery dates. The Air National Guard is also working on some delays on two hangars that are being worked on to service the KC's. Senator Hassen was briefed in October "on the latest developments with the KC-46 air refueling tanker, including a progress update on facilities preparation, and toured the base. Pease Air National Guard Base is home to the 157th Air Refueling Wing of the New Hampshire Air National Guard and will become home to the U.S. Air Force's next generation refueling tanker, the KC-46." I have to say, when I press the transmit button on the mic to call Portsmouth tower, I'm still tempted to say Pease tower.

LANDING FEE'S at Airports in New England 11-30-17: In an email letter to its renters, Southern Maine Aviation chief instructor warns pilots to beware of unexpected landing and handling fees. Apparently, one of their Skyhawks landed at an airport in Massachusetts and they received a landing fee bill for $130. He said the airplane landed and took off five minutes later. AOPA has been reporting about FBO's gouging pilots with unreasonable landing fees and ramp fees. It sounds like the infamous $100 hamburger may end up costing around $500 to $700. If you want to be a frugal pilot, you could take the Skyhaven Flying Club's Skyhawk (at $95/hr) to Sanford Airport's Cockpit Cafe for total cost of plane and food for around $70.

No BLACK FRIDAY Deals on Skyhawk's 11-23-17: Looking for a deal on a brand new Skyhawk? According to aviation publications, Cessna is holding the line for a new Skyhawk at a little over $300,000. Sales are flat and access for the general masses remains limited to the fleet of pre-1990 planes, but that's becoming limited as well. Southern Maine Aviation no longer has their 172m and the light sport is gone also. So, how many Skyhawks did Cessna sell last year? According to GAMA, the answer is 100. Just for the record, car sales in the U.S. for 2016 was 17.6 million.

Updated FAA Aeronautical Chart User's Guide 11-17-17: AOPA reports in a recent news email that the FAA is updating the charts. They now have a what's new title. That makes sense. One recent change that's being advertised is the red TFR circle around Disneyland. AOPA called the new blue circle "thin blue circles depicting permanent temporary flight restrictions (TFR)." The FAA website legend calls them, "Permanent Continuous Flight Restriction Areas."
