MASSACHUSETTS COVID-19 TRAVEL ORDER UPDATE 

We have good news! Governor Baker has recently instituted new travel orders, and most 6B6 customers are not affected!   Fortunately, there are two exemptions that relate to general aviation and your ability to fly into Minute Man. First, if you are coming from within Mass or If you are coming from lower risk states such as New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island or New York you only have to wear a mask if not able to socially distance yourself from others. 

The other exemption has to do with people who are passing through Massachusetts “and permits travelers to drive through the State or to connect to their airplane… or make use of travel services such as at a highway rest stop.”  The full text of the Order and information about completing the online travel form for those who the exemptions do not apply may be found here.  If you are from out of state, take advantage of the exemptions and don’t hesitate to fly into Minute Man!  We’re safely greeting customers with masks and strict sanitizing protocols and we look forward to seeing you soon!

2020-2021 NEW ENGLAND FLYING GOURMET CHALLENGE

We’re thrilled to once again participate in the New England Flying Gourmet Challenge!  Have you taken the challenge?  It is “a joint marketing event between the participating Restaurants, FBOs and flight schools whose goal is to reintroduce our New England pilots to the great airport restaurants in our area, while also building friendships between pilots from different airports.” 

This year’s Challenge runs from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Quarterly prizes will be given and a grand prize will be awarded at the conclusion of the Challenge. QR Codes are used to track your participation and points are given for each check-in at participating restaurants, airports and fight schools.  Points may also be earned for other aviation activity such as nautical miles flown, adding a rating or an endorsement to it, upgrading your license, aircraft rental and fuel purchases, attending an in-person FAA Safety seminar or providing an aircraft to a Young Eagles event once they are running again. You’ll even receive points for posting a picture of yourself enjoying a meal at one of the restaurants! 

The New England Gourmet Challenge is a fun (and delicious!) way to support general aviation!  For further information, go to https://www.facebook.com/neflyinggourmets/ .

THANK YOU!

Last weekend’s Party on the Patio was a huge success, with well over 100 people safely enjoying lunch from the Café, live music by Jae Mannion and free birthday cake and ice cream!

There was plenty of space for social distancing, folks wore their masks and generally enjoyed good food, good music and one another’s company in the sunshine.  Nancy, Don and the team were thrilled to have the opportunity to thank their loyal supporters, and to celebrate the air field’s
51st birthday.

A special thank you goes to State Representative Kate Hogan, who cut a ribbon to mark the opening of Nancy’s new takeout operation.  She was ably assisted by Nancy, Don,Stow and Boxborough Selectmen  and members of the Airport Commission.
