Welcome to CY Aviation and the Boone Municipal Airport!
It’s a great time of the year to be in Iowa!! ...the flowers are blooming, the weather is lovely, outdoor activities abound...and thunderstorms and severe weather threats are everywhere! Don’t be caught off-guard, and be sure to get a thorough weather briefing before you consider flying off to family gatherings, flight breakfasts, class reunions, airshows or summer getaways. And don’t forget to check density altitude! 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.
Speaking of events, 2014 marks the return of the the National Farm Progress Show once again to Boone this coming August 26-28! If good weather prevails, the Boone Municipal Airport will once again be buzzing with aircraft small and large coming from all across the nation and even from some international locations. You can follow the Farm Progress Show activities by visiting their website. If you would like to volunteer at the airport during the show, please contact CY Aviation at (515) 432-1018. We can always use the help!
The Boone Municipal Airport ramp renovation project is now complete. We now have pay-at-the-pump capability for after-hours fuel customers. (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards are accepted.) Other new amenities include a yard light at the fuel pumps (which were moved farther away from the hangar), newly-decorated fuel pumps with colorful pump reel houses (see photos of Connie’s latest handiwork), new security fencing with a drive-through security gate, new concrete and drains in front of the hangar walk-through door. An additional hangar is currently under construction as well. After a too-long hiatus caused by computer issues, our Skycam is now back in service!
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 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 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!
