Welcome to CY Aviation and the Boone Municipal Airport!
Midwinter in Iowa is generally snowy, blowy and brings some of the most miserably cold times of the year. THIS winter, however, has certainly been a mixed bag, with sub-zero temps and brutal windchills in December, thunderstorms in January and now spring-like temps in February and March. With such unpredictable conditions, don’t be caught off-guard, and be sure to get a thorough weather briefing before you consider flying off to southern getaways, sports tournaments or winter sports vacations. 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. Note that KBNW is hosting a flight breakfast on Saturday, May 6th...details are forthcoming, but put this on your social calendars!
The Boone Municipal Airport’s ramp reconstruction project is now complete. And our pay-at-the-pump capability for after-hours fuel customers continues to be very popular for fliers stopping by during evenings, weekends and holidays. Indoors, we are providing new upgrades to our pilot’s lounge and flight training room. Come and check us out!
As always, many local and transient aircraft and National Guard operations fill the skies over Boone all winter long, so come out and watch a variety of aircraft using the Boone Municipal Airport. New to our lineup of aircraft to watch for is the National Guard’s unmanned drone, which flies several times a month in the pattern as well as in designated practice areas south of Boone. 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, with it’s Aspen Pro 1000 Flight Display, and our older Cessna 172 with her beloved “round dials,” are still available for rental and instruction. 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 winter mechanical TLC, Bob Jones, our chief mechanic is here to assist.
Lastly, don’t forget that special aviator on your holiday shopping list...graduations, and Mother’s and Father’s Days will be here before you know it! CY Aviation gift certificates are perfect for ALL holidays, birthdays and special occasions. 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 warm (or cool!), stay safe, and keep the blue side up!
