Welcome to CY Aviation and the Boone Municipal Airport!
Summertime in Iowa has officially arrived with the summer solstice on June 21st. With long hours of daylight also comes the very real risk of severe convective weather. Central Iowa has already seen its fair share thus far this summer and much more is likely to pop up over the next several months. Don’t be caught off-guard, and be sure to get a thorough weather briefing before you consider flying off to family or class reunions, flight breakfasts, airshows or other fair-weather getaways. And don’t forget to check density altitude before heading out. If you are looking for something fun in Iowa to fly away to, please visit the Iowa Office of Aviation's calendar of events for a listing of family-friendly flying events to enjoy.
The Boone Municipal Airport’s hard-surfaced runway reconstruction project is now complete. Rough areas of concrete have been replaced and fresh, new centerline painting has been added. The four-week project makes our runway look almost like new! Following on three years of ramp renovations that were completed in 2014, a new AWOS, and the addition of pay-at-the-pump capability for after-hours fuel customers, KBNW continues to invest in the future.
As always, many local and transient aircraft, skydiving activities and National Guard operations are filling the skies over Boone, so come out and watch a variety of aircraft using the Boone Municipal Airport. And, please stop on in for a fresh cup of hot coffee or a cold beverage, a bag of fresh popcorn and some “hangar flying” with local pilots.
CY Aviation's Cherokee Archer was recently fitted with some exciting new avionics, including a Garmin 430 GPS and Aspen Pro 1000 Primary Flight Display. Give a call to schedule some time in it and check it out! GPS is the future of general aviation, so now is a great time to hop on the GPS bandwagon.
For active fliers, CY Aviation offers flight training, biennial flight reviews, IFR refresher training and TOL currency. Be sure to let us know if we can assist you with your currency requirements. And if your plane needs a little summer mechanical TLC, Bob Jones, our chief mechanic is here to assist.
Lastly, don’t forget that special aviator on your holiday shopping list... Christmas will be here before you know it! CY Aviation gift certificates are perfect for ALL holidays and birthdays. A gift certificate would make a wonderful gift for your favorite aviator. Or perhaps a new headset is in order for that special pilot on your shopping list? We have an assortment of pilot supplies available, so give us a call if you are looking for something special. From all of us at CY Aviation, stay cool, stay safe, and keep the blue side up!
