Colorado TFRs

E-mail Print PDF
TFR

The dry conditions in the summer month's mean that fires can pop up all over the Colorado.  It also doesn't help that Colorado is a "battleground" state in the upcoming elections and is the subject of repeated visits by VIPs.

The FAA may issue a Temporary Flight Restiction, so please check their site for NOTAMs and give these TFRs a wide berth.

Be aware that we may have multi and single engine tankers climbing and descending through our environment. These may overfly Boulder at any altitude as they flew back to Metro to refuel/reload.  They may or may not be on field frequency as they go by. At first glance some of the single engine aircraft could easily be mistaken for a Pawnee returning from a tow, so keep those Mk 1 eyeballs peeled!

For the latest information, call your local Flight Service Station at 1-800-WX-BRIEF

The SSB is pleased to introduce FlightLog, the go to place for daily flight operations and billing.

You can find a quick start guide on using the system herelistincloud: icon FlightLog Quick Start Guide (313.72 kB)

This web application combines our existing Tow List, Flight Log, Tow Logs and Scheduler into one web tool that can be accessed from your phone, office or home. This lays the groundwork for faster, easier, more accurate flight recording and online billing.

The old single user system will be retired, but we are migrating our flight statistics back to 2000.

While we are in the transistion period you can sign on and see what's happening.

Newsflash

The SSB Board of Directors has voted to increase tow prices by $1/1000 ft commencing December 1st 2012. This was triggered by a substantial increase in the price of 100LL since the rates were last adjusted in 2010. This will also help to keep the tow plane engine fund on track.
