Tower Update

I hope everyone is well. The tower guys are all healthy and thankful to be working. We were also fortunate to get Scott Hillegeist certified before everything came to a screeching halt. We are now fully staffed and with the FAA’s freeze on hiring/training, we could stay that way for a while.

Both Midwest ATC and FAA have been very supportive. We have stock of all necessary supplies and other resources have been made available, if needed.
Every effort is being made to keep the tower operational. Until the FAA’s security notice is cancelled, only mission essential personnel can enter the building.

The district office relayed that the FAA has reached out to flight schools/military units, and they plan to resume normal flight-ops once the stay-at-home order is lifted. Since that accounts for the bulk of our traffic, we should bounce back quickly, and we are looking forward to getting back to normal day-to-day operations around here!

Stay Safe and Happy Flying!
