Tom Goddard has arranged for a four person life raft to be stored at our site and made available for rental should you be planning a water crossing. Rates and sign out procedures will be forth coming.
We assisted Province of NS helicopters again, with Jet A fuel, in a second forest fire.
Fuel sales are now at 9020 litres and we will soon be ready for our third purchase of fuel. Thanks to Waterville Airport Cooperative again for their funding of our fuel inventory. Remember we are not charging landing fees to visiting aircraft under 2000 kgs gross weight and plan to cover these costs from the profit on fuel sales. If you are able to purchase fuel from our pump please do.
Walter Isenor has agreed to organize our first fly in and dates will come soon for that.
Eric Sawler is discussing, with Truro Flying Club, the provision of flight training and aircraft rental at CYZX. This could happen in September but nothing for sure as of today. Anyone wanting training should let us know as I believe as soon as there are 6 or more students a ground school will begin.
