“Best” Fuel Price – $4.19!!!

 

T-HANGAR UPDATE:

We have hired a new engineering firm, Ducharme & Dillis of Bolton, MA to get our project moving.  They have promised to file the following permit applications by March 1st: T-Hangar Special Permit with the Stow Zoning Board of Appeals, Notice of Intent with the Stow Conservation Commission, and Erosion Control Special Permit and Earth Removal Permit with the Stow Planning Board.  Once filed and the hearing dates have been determined by the various permitting agencies, we will produce a time-line for the entire project.

Because of the high interest in new hangars at Minute Man, we have decided to construct two 10-unit buildings.  We currently have 12 units reserved.  Those on the list will receive separate, more detailed announcements as we move forward.  Contact Sheldon in OPS if you would like to learn how to make a reservation.

A word about FUEL PRICES:

Our pledge to you is to keep the lowest possible margin on our fuel and adjust our prices (either up or down) with each 8,000 gallon delivery.  The above price is the lowest in recent memory.  You will get this low price through March.  Fly somewhere this week.  You’ve earned it!!!

Phase 2 Runway Repaving!

Phase 2 Runway Repaving!

We are thrilled to announce that the second phase of our runway repaving project is underway!

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PROCEDURES DURING CONSTRUCTION***

  • Slide1

  • In pattern, leave extra time for A/C ahead of you to back taxi off runway. After landing, do 180° as soon as practical, if RNWY is too narrow do 180° at closed intersection

  • When Departing, Hold short on Taxiway, short of North Ramp Intersection for Arriving A/C to clear. Listen for traffic in pattern. A/C downwind and abeam numbers, will take 4 to 5 minutes to land, back-taxi and clear TXWY at Pumps. When RNWY and TXWY clear, taxi to RNWY 21 and depart.

Slide2

  • When landing, respect New Threshold due to Equipment under Approach.

  • When Departing, Hold short on Taxiway, short of North Ramp Intersection for Arriving A/C to clear. Listen for traffic in pattern. A/C downwind and abeam numbers, will take 3 to 4 minutes to land and clear TXWY at Pumps. When RNWY and TXWY clear, back-taxi on RNWY and depart RNWY 03.

Slide3

  • To get to the Pumps, Approach from the North. Depart the Pumps to the South, then right turn onto TXWY.

  • Listen to CTAF and be extra vigilant scanning for traffic.

  • Focus on cooperation – don’t be in a hurry – keep new runway in mind – it will all be worth it in the end!!!

Please carefully monitor NOTAMs for the most up to date information.
