Winter Operations 2019-2020
- Please remove salt blocks from your vehicle when entering the gate.
As you drive and or park your car salt blocks may fall off your vehicle causing
dangerous conditions for yours and others props. A prop strike into this hard matter
is enough to require an engine tear down. Should salt blocks fall off please toss salt blocks clear off taxiways and ramps.
- When arriving and or departing the airport PLEASE: verify the outside bathroom door,
and office door are closed, Vehicle gate closes all the way.
if you are at or near 5G0 and would like to give a snow report Please and Thank You!
If you utilize the office, please make sure heat is at 60 when departing, and inside office bathroom door is left open.
During the winter months if you come out alone...bring a cell phone and warm gear in
case you get stuck and need help! Let friends/family know when to expect you home!
Possibly need help getting your aircraft in or out on the ice give a call don't fall!
YAKTRACKS ...They will help keep you on your feet on that black ice! If you do not own a pair now please consider buying
them for yourself and friends that fly often with you! They may be purchased at most sporting goods stores.
HEATERS...only approved heaters, (Tanis, natural gas installed professionally) Propane heaters outside only! Please do not
leave any external heating source unattended! Keep all combustibles away from all heating sources. Remember, its not just your
airplane that may go up in flames!
The vehicle road ..... will remain usable, however, that is the last area that gets plowed.
Caution using this road in the Winter it has unforgiving slopes especially when coated with ice!
Please do not drive on any taxiways or runways!
Remember, this might be a good time to make sure your C02 detector is new and your winterization plate on if
needed the manufacturer calls for it
Thank You and have a wonderful Winter of Flying!
