The FAA is proposing the elimination of two approaches into Boire Field, the VOR-A and the NDB RWY 14 as well as 734 other approaches across the country (including others at NH airports).
Many of you submitted comments on this matter back in November which we in turn submitted to NHDOT and we greatly appreciate the feedback. We are asking all of you to submit your comments directly to the FAA through the Federal Register. The comment period will be open until May 28, 2015. With such a rich training environment, we believe all of our approaches should be preserved, particularly the VOR-A which serves as an excellent backup in the event any of our ILS equipment is down. You can find more information, as well as how to submit comments by clicking on the FEDERAL REGISTER logo below.
An organization known as the ACRP (Airport Cooperative Research Program) has solicited the services of Aerodyne Research, Inc. to measure the amounts of nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide (important drivers of "smog") produced by general aviation piston engines. Aerodyne Research has reached out to the Boire Field community to ask for your help in conducting this research.
This important research is being conducted because there is no measured data for GA engine emissions and if the FAA were to require GA airports to report emissions as they do with commercial service airports, the FAA would substitute out smaller piston engines for larger ones that have known values of emissions. This substitution is harmful to GA by making it appear that our aircraft pollute more than they really do.
So here’s where you can help. Research like this can help to enhance the image of the airport in the community. Aerodyne research would greatly appreciate it if they can get up to 20 aircraft to volunteer to be a part of this study. The testing involves the use of a no-contact probe placed outside and behind the aircraft. The pilot or mechanic will conduct a 15 minute ground test simulating idle, taxi, approach, cruise, take off and full power. In exchange, Aerodyne Research will top off your tanks up to $100 for each aircraft!
It’s first-come, first-served so call today if you are interested in being a part of this important research! The person to contact is:
