New Turf on 12/30 and new paved over-run on runway 3?! What’s next? #BusinessAsUsual Watch us on FB for updates!

Runway ‘3’ Safety Area Paving Updates
AKA ‘Runway ‘21’ over-run’! 
Runway ‘3’ Safety Area Paving is now MARKED!!! Thanks to our summer staffer, Jared Bilancieri and volunteer ‘Supervisors’ Steve Trefry and Jim Geanakos. Jared spent a full day laying out the 60’ tall ‘3’ and two 110’ long by 18” wide centerlines! Although the paved over-run has no practical effect on the landing length for ‘Runway 3’, it is available for roll-out on ‘Runway 21’ bringing it to 3,110’ available for landing. Come check it out!!!

Runway ‘12/30’ Improvements
Runway ‘12/30’, our 1,600’ x 60’ Turf Runway, is now being mowed and seeing frequent use!!! You are reminded that ‘Runway 30’ is not available for takeoffs. When operating on our parallel taxiway, please remember that ‘12/30’ is an active runway and you should look both ways before and announce when crossing it! Hold short lines are on our ‘To Be Painted’ list as a further reminder to be alert!!!

Did You Know?
‘T-3’ Hangar tenants now have running water in each unit?!  (As do all those in T-1 & T-2.) Thanks to our site contractor, Jason Fenton, for blowing out the plugged 4” conduit connecting T-3 to T-2 and pushing through the 1” water pipe. Thanks too to Scot Gordon for insulating all the plumber’s piping, which will prevent condensation from dripping on the planes!

Runway ‘3’ Safety Area Paving Updates

Lazaro Paving Company has now fine-graded and compacted our 340’ Safety Area. They will return with their paving crew any day now…  Watch for NOTAMS temporarily displacing our threshold during paving.


Runway ‘12/30’ Improvements

After fine-grading our ‘3′ RSA’, Lazaro Paving moved their grader and attention to Runway ‘12/30’.

Last week runway ’12/30′ was graded, smoothed, compacted then layered with top soil. Thursday, our farm friends from Dancing Plover Farms “fluffed” and fine graded the topsoil, and Friday Boyd Landscaping of Stow hydroseeded the whole shootin’ match. Can you imagine how beautiful that will be when the grass is established? Needless to say, ‘12/30’ will be temporarily NOTAM’d closed until June 30th. But it will be worth it!

Turf Runway 12/30 Re-Opening July 1st!

Calling all taildraggers, join Minute Man Air Field – 6B6, July 1st to help celebrate the re-opening runway 12/30. Time to get those tires on some turf! Starting at noon on the 1st of July, (which also happens to be exactly Minute Man celebrates our 50th Anniversary)! At 6pm we will have a family friendly cookout with hot dogs, soft drinks, and ice cream. You don’t have to land on the turf to help us celebrate our 50th and 12/30 reopening. It’s a party for all comers!!! https://www.airnav.com/airport/6B6
