New future for B19

Currently the City of Biddeford is supporting the airport because they understand how much of an asset the airport is not only to the city but also to many local businesses. They are currently working on projects involving clearing the trees at both ends of the runway so that the approaches will be cleared according to FAA standards and there is speculation of redoing the runway in approx. 3-4 years after the tree clearing projects have been completed. With a little time and support from the city, this airport will probably become a destination most pilots will be visiting I the future. They are off to a great start and with the airport under new management I can see great things happening here within the near future.

KLIZ

It was always a tough and long approach as a TACAN APP 17,000 ft, at PQI decent and right turn to RWY-1 and winters are much harder.

FBO

The FBO is still run by FlightLevel, but is now located in the former base ops building (aka the old control tower) at the north end of the runway.

Client flight

I am working with a client for a visit to the Quoddy Lighthouse this July, 2015. If I can get her and her son into Bangor, is there a flight to this airport that will connect? Please advise.

FORMER Brunswick Naval air station

Brunswick Naval air Station no longer exists. On April 02, 2011 the former NAS became a General Aviation airport named Brunswick Executive Airport BXM. Of the two 8000' runways only one is open for use: 1R and 19L. That is the runway to the East, nearest the tarmac. The FBO is located in the huge Hangar 6 at the North end of the runways.

Friendly FBO

The FBO guys were nice and friendly. Airport is about a 15-20 min walk to a number of restaurants. Close to the mountains too, so some great scenery in the area.

Customs

No problems with Customs guys. Called 207-473-7474, 2 hrs beforehand, and they were waiting for me at the GA Terminal (not the Passenger terminal). There is no courtesy car, but apparently lots of car rental companies are handy.

re: Airlines

The Wikipedia article and FlightAware both say that Houlton currently has no scheduled airline service. I passed directly over Houlton on my flight from Ottawa to Charlottetown on Tuesday, and back again this morning, and didn't hear any airline flights inbound or outbound on Boston Centre's frequency.

It's a beautiful part of the US, by the way, especially with Mt. Katahdin a bit to the west.

Previously Loring Air Force Base (was KLIZ?)

In the 1980 and 90s, this was a USAF base that flew B-52 bombers and KC-135 tankers. I flew a PAR approach into there once, in a CH-135 Twin Huey, en route from YCX yo YOY. On short final, we were called "dangerously left of centerline" by the radar controller. Getting out of clouds at about 300 ft, we were about half way between the centreline and the edge of the runway... In a B-52 (wingspan = 185 ft), I agree that it would have been touchy, even on a 300 ft-wide runway; the wing-tip outriggers would have been in the daisies... but in a helicopter??? Anywhere within half a mile of the button is close enough! After "landing" on the runway (skid-equipped helicopter) we had to "roll" all the way to the high-speed turn-off, about 2/3 of the way down the runway, to air-taxi all the way back behind a follow-me truck to the transient ramp, abeam the threshold of the runway we had shot the approach to, at the south end of the airport. I guess helicopters were unusual beasts for their Operations staff.

In danger of closing

The city of Biddeford, Maine may hold a referendum on closing this airport in November 2008 or sooner. For details, see
