NOTAM: JUN 5 2021
Hello MacAir, as some may have already noticed. The website may be "missing" a few things you are used to seeing. This was done intentionally.
Steve K. has worked very hard on providing an amazing event in celebration of our anniversary. To ensure we keep the integrity of the event intact we have removed the list of completed pending pireps for the public to see.
We realized that it is possible for pilots to see trends in submitted pireps and discover the location of the event. This will have no affect on your ability to submit pireps and have them accepted in a timely manner.
I appreciate everyone understanding. I will take this opportunity to thank Steve K. again for putting it all together and hope everyone participates.
NOTAM - JUN 13 2021
Good morning MacAir. I hope everyone is doing well. The MacAir Q2 Meeting will be held on Jul 11th at 1100hrs EST / 1500hrs Zulu The meeting minutes as for now are the following:
-Web page trim for the event (questions/comments)
-Size of the schedule/airframes, too overwhelming?
-Suggestions / Questions from pilots
-Executive Staff comments
I strongly encourage all pilots to attend. This is your opportunity to meet with the staff and executive staff to discuss, well anything you would like. The good and bad are welcome.
Airport- CYYG Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada
Prince Edward Island is an island province of Canada, located north of Maine, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. It is renowned for its beautiful rolling hills and red sandstone cliffs and beaches.
Regularly scheduled flights service Charlottetown from Montreal and Toronto. Delta occasionally added flights from New York during tourist season. WestJet experimented with a direct flight to Orlando in 2015, but it failed to maintain demand and was axed in 2017.
This will be a fun-loved flight for our Canadian bretheren. Nearly all the available flights in the schedules originate from other Canadian airports, with one exception starting at KJFK.
