I am lucky to know academic experts who help me with my learning tasks because I have a part-time student job, and it is hard to manage everything. So is the service that offers professional assignment help online. Therefore, I have no worries I will not get an A grade since I know my exercises are done with support from expert writers. I wish good luck to everyone, and you can try this source to improve your study success.

re: Education in very important

explain well because I personally didn't understand shit I'm Italian, and your phrases of philosophy have nothing to do with what you show us.

what is it? is it an airport or a university?

and if it is a university what kind of university is it? is it a study academy for those who want to start studying aeronatic sciences? and a pilot school? in short what the heck is it?

Education in very important

University and essay are closely interconnected in the realm of education. A University is an institution where students engage in learning and receive formal education. An essay, on the other hand, is a written piece of work that allows students to demonstrate their understanding of various subjects, topics, or concepts. Essays are often assigned as tasks by teachers to assess students' knowledge, critical thinking skills, and ability to communicate effectively through written expression.

I flew in to MSO and drove out and there was no airport around, if my comment is a error please tell me.

DFW is terrible, every time I go my bags either get lost or stuck at the airport. My flights always get delayed at least 2 hours 0/10

An Empty Place.

I went from my home airport of DCA to DAY, it is amazing how it there are direct flights. We were on a CRJ-900 that was 3/4s Full but when we walked to the baggage claim it was long but nobody was there, like nobody. Even the people on our plane, the place was deserted but eventually we got to baggage claim.

Mystery solved

Posted address on FAA and AirNav is incorrect, Western Surgery Center is adjacent to Cache Valley Hospital in North Logan.

CGI - Great Airport

I've only visited by automobile so far so I can't speak on specifics like fuel and related services.

CGI is a small regional airport that's big on amenities. Great FBO for passengers and pilots alike. There's a good restaurant called The Pilot House that has a great view overlooking the flight line and runways. One carrier (Contour Airlines, as of August 2023) based here that has affordable flights to Nashville, TN.

Everyone I've encountered here has been friendly.

The Red Baron was here.

We stopped to pick up a passenger on our way home from Indiana and the Red Baron landed just after we did.

re: Better get it right

Reply to @Randallksparks: It is quite short and narrow. The trees were a bit unnerving but I got it right and stuck it down on my first flight as a PPL.y CFI was great.

Looks vary nice

We had people waiting to pick us up and it was after hours so we didn’t go into the FBO. But it was vey clean and mowed up nice

Fact about SLK!

During the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics runway 05-23 was stretched to be able for a Boeing 747 to land!

Mystery solved

The FAA and AirNav coordinates placed this incorrectly well to the north, but a chance spot of N7802K (private Cessna 180J Skywagon) observed taking off from there on 17 Feb 2023 finally solved this mystery

Turns out this is the actual location of TA55 Del Valle, whose FAA coordinates were way too far north.

It would be cool if San Miguel had an airport

Busy military training field

Clean and nice FBO (Freeman) with a little restaurant and store. Getting an Uber is time consuming and the pattern is filled with Air Force trainees. The short base pattern to a parallel runway got me a little nervous when I saw a plane coming right at me before he turned to 8L. But overall a decent experience. Fuel cost is reasonable.

Picture of AlanM70

Nice airport

FBO was open Operator was friendly and helpful. Inexpensive fuel.

Picture of AlanM70

Nice Facility with Courtesy Car

Nice unmanned FBO with showers if needed and a Courtesy Car.

9NC0 is in Charlotte, though, right?

I think the correct designation for Raleigh East is W17, at least per flightaware, airportguide, and airnav.

Those 3 sites also show 9NC0 as being in Charlotte.

Emergency use airfield.

While CGAS Casco Cove closed in 2010, runway 2/20 remains available for emergency use as of 2023 per AirNAV.

Fuel price is still ok

Former N/S farm airstrip ...

Now long since overshadowed by the massive Michael Heizer art installation, "City", which is many times larger than this airstrip ever was.

Reply to @JitendraPS: Wrong Alexandria, that's Borg El Arab International Airport serving Alexandria, Egypt, and this is Alexandria Airport which is a small rural airport serving Alexandria, Indiana, USA. Please be aware there are many localities in the world with duplicated names.

The actual field is slightly to the northeast on the other side of the road.

Reply to @david: No longer an issue now that we've moved to Leaflet and ESRI satellite imagery.

Airline service

I notice that Hanscom has airline service now -- great alternative to (overcrowded) KBOS. I've updated the record.

Amazing scenery

The views coming into this airport are incredible!

re: Update, airport closed from Google maps view.

Reply to @mikeiaka: whoops, it’s the runway that seems to look like that’s it’s getting demolished.

Update, airport closed from Google maps view.

Seems to look closed, so I settled it from open to closed.

This airport is really clean and helpful for all of us..

Sad little place that has been neglected

Stopped by for an hour to check out a potential job. Spray plane was buzy but the former FBO is now a water district office so there is no public bathroom available. Sad to see an airport get neglected.

Picture of AlanM70

Nice little airport can sneak in under the Peoria Charlie.

Picked up a passenger on the way to Owensboro. Talked to FAA when on the way home.

Nice place

Dropped in for a couple of hours. Ate at the Moonlite BBQ Place. I think it was as good as advertised.

re: Closed

Reply to @ND8D: thanks, I aready made it closed.

Picture of ND8D


Runway basically destroyed. No aircraft operations in years.

Picture of ND8D


Homes built along runway, part of the runway surface removed.

Picture of mikeiaka

Runways closed

Two of the runways, one heading north and one north-west, have X’s on them, since they have them I made those 2 runways closed for now.

Not a typo

While autocorrect and my own instincts tell me this should be "Remembrance", this is indeed the spelling used in AirNav, AOPA, and all other sources.

Former YFZ Ranch (FLDS)

This dirt airstrip serves ETG Ranch (aka Eldorado Training Grounds), a military and law enforcement training facility on the former YFZ (Yearning for Zion) Ranch owned and operated by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) polygamist sect. This is newer aviation facility that did not exist during the YFZ era.

Willow Run Airport

Willow Run Airport is an airport in Van Buren Charter Township and Ypsilanti Township, near Ypsilanti, Michigan, United States, that serves freight, corporate, and general aviation. Due to its very close proximity to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, no major airlines schedule passenger flights to or from Willow Run.

It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a national reliever airport facility.

Opened in 1942, "Willow Run" was synonymous with the American industrial effort that contributed so much to Allied victory in World War II. Operated by the Ford Motor Company, the Willow Run manufacturing plant produced a total of 8,685 B-24 Liberator heavy bombers, completed and in kit form, before closure in April 1945; Willow Run produced more Liberators than either plant owned by the plane's designer, Consolidated Aircraft.

Today the Yankee Air Museum, located in one of the airport's hangars, has a large collection of vintage aircraft.
