Workers and Equipment at Roche Harbor

Dear Pilots,

 Roche Harbor Airport is scheduled to have some workers on the runway and around the Airfield beginning Tuesday May 29th through Thursday the 31st.

The turn-a-round pavement area at the West end is being enlarged & taxiway Bravo (near the west displaced threshold) will have its edges widened between the runway & access to the parking area. Also there is a small damage area on the runway that will get a patch around mid field.

As always, the PIC has final responsibility for safe operations. Please be very cognizant of personnel and vehicles in hazardous locations as you move about at the Airfield, and always announce your intentions.

 Sincerely,

Chris Blaine, SJPA

Roche Harbor Landing Fees

This seems pretty important, over on “Roche Harbor Airport News,” they announced a new landing fee structure.

Second, in more down-to-earth news (via David King, Roche Harbor Neighborhood Association Treasurer and pilot) there’s a new Roche Harbor Airport landing fee structure, replacing the old landing fee system and no longer based on aircraft type but on “certified maximum allowed takeoff weight (MTOW).” Fees for all landings, “even a quick turnaround,” range from $10 for up to 3,600 lbs MTOW to $25 for those of 8,400 lbs MTOW and over. There’s also an annual “frequent lander” rate of $207 for the lightest category and $245 for the heaviest two categories of MTOW.  If an aircraft stays overnight, there’s an additional $5 fee per night.

Hangar Space Needed

She’s not very big, but my LSA has been hangared all her life and wouldn’t know how to fend for herself in the weather.  Do you have room in your hangar for a low-wing, lightweight LSA?  Give Marc a call at 360.317.5377.  I listed her for sale today so hopefully she’ll only be around for 1-3 months.
