MANSFIELD GETS AN AVIONICS SHOP !!
June 25, 2007
Well great things continue
to happen at Mansfield Landing. Dave Fethertston has left the company
he started (Altair Avionics) back in 1993 to start a new Avionics
company here at Mansfield. The company "NexAir Avionics"
will be a certified FAA Repair Station and will have distributorships
for all the major avionics companies. Just come by and take a look
at the "better than new" Cessna 172 that Dave did if you
want an example of the work he can do. Best of Luck Dave!
We are continuing to
improve on the great pilot lounge.It is stocked with supplies for
your flying needs and even has free bottled water courtesy of NexAir
Avionics. Grab a bottle the next time you go out and fly.
Kit and Fire Extinguisher
There is an environmental
spill kit and fire extinguisher inside the pilot lounge to the left.
Please notify us if you have a spill and need to use the kit.
All the hangars are
sold. You can contact Dave
Fetherston. if you want to be put on the waiting list for hangars.
The cost will be $70/month
without electric and $75/month with electric. Please spread the
word and have anybody interested contact Dave
Tiedown residents have
full access to the pilot lounge.
Mansfield Landing will
supply the rope but it is the pilot's responsibility to make sure
the rope is properly used and their airplane is secure.
Any unoccupied space
will be available to the residents of Mansfield Landing Condo Association
for transient airplane parking.
