Southwest end of runway in poor shape

The southwest 600 feet of the runway (the first 600 of rwy 06 or the last 600 of 24) is in pretty bad shape, and has now officially been NOTAM'ed closed. The rest of the runway is a bit bumpy, but generally OK. The apron is at the northeast end.

U.S. Customs

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is willing to meet aircraft at Maxson -- it's not officially listed as an airport of entry, but it's much closer to the Thousand Islands Bridge where the CBP officers are based than Watertown (KART), so it saves them driving.

One quirk (for both Maxson and Watertown), is that they won't accept arrival notices before the day of arrival because so many pilots don't show up, so you have to get up early to call two hours before arrival for a morning flight. They also couldn't meet me at 7:45 am because it was too close to shift change, but 8:00 am was fine.

Here are the phone numbers:

Voice: (315) 482-2472

Fax: (315) 428-5436
