June 2013 NOTAM


SUMMER SOON !!  Our spring bulbs have faded and our perennials are starting to bloom.  Beach weather can’t be far behind ! ! !  See you on South Beach or Race Point, both ‘walk to’ beaches from Katama Airpark and Provincetown Airport, respectively.

THANK YOU, Steve Rawding of MassDOT Aeronautics Division for explaining to us how the ‘Real World Design Challenge’ program works and how local pilots can help. Several pilots expressed interest in mentoring high school students in this exciting program.  Check in OPS for more info.

KATE HOGAN, thank you for your 5/2 update on legislation affecting General Aviation in our state.

FOMA’s Hangar Talk on 6-1 was well attended again. FOMA has moved their web site to Make the switch today so you don’t miss any hot news!

General Aviation Day at the Statehouse on 5-13 was attended by Bob Glorioso, Co-Chairman of our Airport Commission, and Don McPherson, who helped promote GA with our state legislators.  Dan Hnatio of Active Video (based at Minute Man with a lovely Taylorcraft) taped the event for the Massachusetts Airport Management Association (MAMA) for future promotional use. Thank you, Dan.

FOMA’s ‘LAMA’ Contest, (‘Landed at All Massachusetts Airports’) rules and entry forms are being picked up daily in OPS and Magenta – don’t be left out.  All successful contestants will receive a $50 gift certificate for dinner at Nancy’s. Explore each airport, make new friends, fill your ‘flying stories’ book chock full of new adventures!  Get ready to have some fun and share it with a friend!

EAA Chapter 196 is busy this month:

On 6/8 they will host their second Young Eagles event of the year from 9am ‘til noon.

On 6/24 they will host their second BBQ of the season at 6pm on Nancy’s terrace.  All are welcome.

Visit for details on this month’s schedule, specials and events.  Remember Father’s Day requires reservations.  The pizza oven made its first pizza at 5/31’s ‘dress rehearsal’ for Wings and Wheels.  No big surprise, it was yummy!

The ‘Wings and Wheels’ Planning Committee held their last meeting on 5/31.  The 12 week event starts June 6th.  Get details at Sign up at OPS to show your plane, lead tours, or provide ramp safety/security. This sure-to-be-fun community outreach activity will make everyone a winner!  Get involved today.  Give us feedback on our new web site, which tells the 6B6 / GA story.

Our Full Moon Fly Out JUN 19th  – 26th is great for introducing folks to GA.  Consider inviting a fireman, policeman, selectman, reporter, state rep, or senator to go.  You can spread the word about the benefits of GA while having a good time.  Call OPS for our destination.  Wheels up at 5:30.

*The ‘BEST FUEL PRICE’ is likely to change during the month when our next shipment starts flowing.

 Catch the ‘Minute Man Spirit’ at one of our events this month.  No cure is known!
