K-Club Tour of FAA Center

At the beginning of the month, we where able to take a tour of the Control Room and Control Tower at the Columbia FAA Center at the Columbia Airport. Thanks to all the kind people at the FAA Flight Standards Office and Bill Como for arranging the tour.

Travel with us as we go and see what happens at the other end of the mic when talking to air traffic control.

Gone Flying Video

A short video of a gas run to Sumter Airport in Steve's C-172.

By the way, gas was $3.35 Gal. 100LL This was my first time to Sumter, and must say that they have a very nice FBO setup. Next time you need gas, drop by and say hello.

Whiteplains Announcement: Hanger for Sale or Rent

Update: SOLD!

Hi Folks,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday.

As my aviation migration continues heading south I am putting my Hanger up for sale or rent.

It is located in beautiful downtown 118 Cirrus Way, next to Jim Causey's hanger.

It is a 40 x 40 insulated hanger with water, sewer and a 1/2 Enclosed Bath.
Comes with a really cool Schweiss strap type door, press the remote and the door opens for your arrival.

It presently houses my Bellanca Super Viking and other toys which are going to their new residence in Jacksonville, Fl.

I would like to sell the hanger as opposed to rental, but would entertain a lease or lease option.

I have an active interested party at $75,000 but first money buys. Owner financing is an option.

Thanks for reading and Blue Skies............
