Airport Report May 2016

Created on Wednesday, 06 July 2016 Written by Doug Dugger

During the month of May 2016 there were 36 flight operations.  There were 4 medevac operations. During May 2016 there have been persistent weather problems and despite that, we are seeing increases in traffic.

May 2016 has been a more ‘normal’ spring month weather-wise for our airport.  We have had rain, wind and some very warm days.  There is still water in Elder Creek, and there is still a little snow left on the highest portions of the Yollo Bolla Mountains.  All of this adds up to a normal spring month with reduced opportunities for flying.  Even the Corning EAA chapter was not able to complete their Young Eagles event of flying kids due to weather concerns.

Maintenance on the airport at this time of year is fairly minimal.  For the most part mowing is done and the grass has quit growing.  There is still a little mowing on the edges of the runway, but nothing major.  Weed control for stickers is still going on.  There are plants such as “Goats Heads” that do not grow and bloom until June.  We patrol for these and spray them as quickly as we find them.
