Default Winter ops Stanley N.S.

There is no winter maintenance on the field, but we haven't had much snow this year so far. An unusual mid winter opportunity.

Vlad, nice pic! I wish I wasn't working otherwise I would have joined you!

Looking forward to the BMC fly in!



All are welcome to join us!

Vlad, post your picture of the runway so that others know what to expect.

Paullie, you need to fly down and play!

See you this summer!

Who else is in for the fly in? Noah? Agent Orange? "Impossible Turn" Al? Machine man?

Yesterday I conducted a recon mission and I am glad to report that ice runway is in use and in great condition. Steve Filbrick the lodge owner is working hard to keep it. He will be also plowing another perpendicular runway in case there is a cross wind. He will be scoring/grooving the ice to improve braking action. When I landed there I wasn't able to turn around at the end of the runway and had to taxi on unplowed lake to parking. It will be corrected by this red monster groover.









Runway on the frozen lake is very long and wide. Parking area moved from the place of last year because of a giant crack in the ice.














Captain John there is another RV who might claim "the newest airplane" prize if I talk him to visiting. Hi Oliver. Maybe you can show them some acro we will clear airspace for you

Sorry won't make it next weekend. Already had promised my kids to go skiing otherwise I would... . So "the newest airplane" prize is still up for grabs.

Oliver
p.s. You won't see me do acro any time soon. I only do that for myself so high that you won't find me anyway... .

Hope to see you up here soon!

Any friend of Vlad's is a friend of mine.

This could be close! It will be 1004nm round trip and no time for a fuel stop!

Hey guys!

I say that we bump this to Sunday, as it is supposed to be the better flying day of the weekend!

I just called up there and spoke to Tyler and he says, "Come on up"!

I am thinking of arriving sometime around 11.
