WOW...Encore presentation to all who missed it last year, and for all who want to hear Bob Bunderson speak to us again!

Bob has been flying out of FNL for 30 years and has an incredibly interesting and varied past.  Join us as we learn about and discuss with him his 20 years in the Navy, the different planes and missions he flew, as well as his transition into flight instruction and FAA Safety Inspector.  He brings a wealth of inside FAA insight to us in an open and enlightening dialog.  And now he's a GA pilot...one of us.  Crossed over from the dark side, in his words.

AND... a delicious variety of free fresh Subway Sandwiches and cold soft drinks starting at 6:30 PM in the Jet Center Main Hangar.  See you there!

  • Location: FNL jetCenter Hangar
  • Time: 6:30 pm for light food followed by the presentation at 7:00 pm.

Remote Tower Update - James Hays
The remote tower is continuing to move forward, but has seen some delays and unforeseen needs.  The FAA has given the project a thumbs up for site acceptance (Phase 0.b) and is now working towards Phase 1.  The original estimate of late Spring to bring ATC services online has a new estimate for September.  

Airport Master Plan Update - James Hays
The Airport Master Plan presentation was very well attended by our members.  Thank you to all that stopped by to hear their presentation and ask questions.  If you were unable to attend or would to review their slides, please visit their website, https://www.flynoco.com/mpu, where you can see and download up to date information.  If you have any questions, comments or feedback regarding this effort, the Airport Commission is actively looking for your feedback.

Denver Metroplex Updates - James Hays
The FAA is continuing to move forward with the Denver Metroplex plans and have provided public access to their proposals.  Of particular interest is the Display Boards (pdf - 30mb) where you can see the changes to arrival and departure proposals.  The largest impact to the Northern Colorado area will be the new PINNR and BRNKO arrivals.  BRNKO will be replacing the existing PUFFR route.  It doesn't appear that these arrivals will carry much DEN traffic, but APA traffic will start much further north than it currently does.  We'll continue to keep an eye on this, but unfortunately, there has been little real opportunity for input.

How Far Can You Go? - IFR Magazine
Seldom does your clearance limit become a factor. So seldom, in fact, that you probably don’t remember the clearance-limit rules you learned in ground school.  Fred Simonds presents an interesting scenario in the IFR world.  What would you do?

Adapting to new technologies - AOPA
Flight safety depends on the precise use of cockpit instruments to keep our inherent bias off the flight deck.  In this article, Kenneth Stahl addresses our own interface with all of these instruments.
