Thumbs up Name change

In a recent ForeFlight update I noticed that 0M3 is now known as “Paul Bridges Field.” I am glad that it didn’t take very long to make the name change.

And in a bit of irony, this same county commission that changed th name almost did not approve airport improvement funds to match the state and FAA grants which had been allocated for runway re-paving, new lighting, etc. Last fall, Paul had to attend their meetings and explain the lost opportunity if they did not allocate their part of the funds. The airport is now NOTAMed closed until early June for the improvements.
