How are the ATP schools doing nationwide? With their main advertising drive being fast track training, I can’t see too many people wanting to hurry into an idle situation.
tread carefully leaving any amount on deposit at a flight school...My flight school started giving out “exclusive access” rentals. Basically for pre-paid min 10 hours you are the only using that plane as long as the school remains closed. So I got me a plane for the next while.
honestly didn’t even think of that, but this school has a good rep and has been around since 1946 so I’m betting on them having staying power. Plus I don’t think flight lessons are their main source of income. Fuel and tie down/hangars and mx are their main sources of income.tread carefully leaving any amount on deposit at a flight school...
Some open, some closed. They have a daily list they put out of the status of their locations. Been doing a lot of webinars lately and trying to talk instructors into holding video ground schools, or something.
No, all but private clubs are closed by county ordinance. It is irresponsible to be open given the fact that someone with COVID-19 will almost surely spread it in the cockpit and put people at risk. Many of the CFIs at my shop are at risk and so are the owners.Has TW reopened again?
So why not just treat it as an untowered field or a towered field when the tower is closed? This makes no sense to me.My flight school is still open, business has gone down a little bit. Can't do any pattern work or practice approches at our airport because the tower is down to three controllers.
Some airports say when the tower is closed there is no TOL, but, I think that is usually meant to be as a night curfew issue and the tower being closed in the daytime is just a technicality.So why not just treat it as an untowered field or a towered field when the tower is closed? This makes no sense to me.
