Default Online petition most likely in the near future...

Thank you John! The petition is on a clipboard in my Jeep (gauging interest with the property owners and renters at 52F). So far I've asked 45 people and got 45 signatures - batting a thousand!

I've been kicking around the idea of setting up an online petition for people NOT based at 52F to sign. Lemme see if I can get that online soon - I'll keep you in the loop!

Thanks again and best,
dr


PS: A pic I took yesterday...

Doh! I'm an idiot, missed the part about the petition being at your hangar... but still, if you get it online, I'll sign it.

And while we're at it, as mentioned previously with other airports, let's rescind the name changes at Redbird, Denton and McKinney... harrumph!

I periodically view pictures of the runway construction taking place at 52F. I'm amazed at how many hangars I see on this field.
How many aircraft are based here?

AirNav lists 616 aircraft based. Normally airport data is updated every 3 years, but in reality, Who knows?

Is that really necessary? That runway is really never going to be near salt water, and I don't imagine you're going for resale value.

Rattle can primer would probably set faster. But may increase costs!

BTW; Will that be a 2-part primer?

Would be interesting to take a census. 616 airplanes is a lot of airplanes and might make this one of the most populous airports in the USA. I doubt it. Sounds more like a promotion than a fact. I'd guess the number is closer to 300.

But it would be interesting to know. I'll bet Doug is working on that right now.
