Fall Morning at Perry-Houston County Airport
.  
Our temporary tower was in operation during the last week in October and a few days in November.  The 53rd Air Traffic Control Squadron from Robins practiced their ATC skills on our local (and some visiting) pilots.  We appreciate the opportunity to work with a control tower at Perry-Houston County Airport occasionally.  Pictured above with Jim Marquardt, airport manager, is MSgt Denton, SMSgt Phillips, TSgt Johnson and 2Lt Steber.
 HAVING A BIT OF TROUBLE MOVING
YOUR AIRCRAFT OVER THE RAILS?
We found an iron shop that will make (3) over-the-rail ramps, metal construction and powder-coated, for $200.00.  If you would like a set of these ramps, give us a call and we'll order them for you and bill to your account when they arrive. We are using a set in hangar 150-8 if you would like to inspect the ramps.
