October 2015 Correspondence

MKE ATC Meeting

A four person committee from Harley-Davidson, SC Johnson, and Briggs and Stratton has been established to have regular communication with MKE ATC. Listed below are the highlights that Maria has shared from the first meeting.
1. MKE ATC controls the airspace 13,000ft and below, ORD Center above 13,000ft.

2. ACCRA and UECKR SIDS are being amended with the ORD arrival gates. Expect the 8000ft restriction on the SIDs to be deleted in December.

3. Utilization of the 25L GPS approaches have no operational restrictions. At any time if the GPS Y or Z approach for 25L- is desired notify ATC, since the GPS approach is progressing at a slower rate of assignment over the localizer approach.

4. Due to the ORD “heavies” transitioning through MKE airspace ATC keeps aircraft at 7000ft for the downwind to 7R and 1L. You can slow to 210 kts. if necessary to allow for the descent when kept at 7000ft. If a speed slower than 210 kts. is needed, notify the controller.

5. To amend a filed route due to weather for departure, call ATC. No PDC can be given on an amended route.

6. When flying to PWK expect:
a. Altitude no higher than 5000ft
b. Heading of 180 for vectors to airport

7. When flying to MKE from PWK expect:
a. Altitude no higher than 7000ft
b. Heading of 360 for vectors once clear of the departure corridor.

8. Snow removal on PAPA taxiway or issues with snow removal on airport contact County Ops 414-747-5325

ALTITUDE “EXPECT” CROSSING ALTITUDES
Gates for Arrival:
BRAVE 10,000ft
SUDDS 14,000ft
BJB 10,000ft
BAE 10,000ft
DREWD 12,000ft
ZOWRO 9,000ft


WBAA Golf Open 2015

Golfers were welcomed with another beautiful day of Wisconsin weather in Kohler for the 2015 WBAA Open sponsored by Gulfstream. Bryan McConnell was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to pursue a Master of Science in Aviation and Aerospace Management, and to finish his flight training goals of obtaining his Commercial, Multi Engine rating with aspirations to fly Part 135 operations. Kyle Budewitz was also awarded a $1,000 scholarship to further his education and obtain a Certified Flight Instructor Certificate along with allow Kyle to build flight time to ultimately pursue a career in business aviation. All of the 2015 recipients will make great additions to flight departments in the future, WBAA, its sponsors, and members wish them great success in their pursuit of a business aviation career.

ADS-B
Performance Based Navigation and the ADS-B mandate is set for January 2020. Wisconsin currently has nine ADS-B transceivers on the ground throughout the state. As ADS-B is implemented, the old VOR DME system will become the backup. The FAA will decommission over half of its 967 VOR’s throughout the United States by December 2019. The FAA’s goal is to maintain VOR coverage at 5,000 feet AGL across the country. Equipping aircraft for the ADS-B mandate will take some time and money, so plan ahead.

NBAA Calls on Members to Make Voices Heard for Access to NY, NJ Airports

Call to Action: FAA Proposal Threatens Business Aviation Access to NY, NJ Airports
Contact: Dan Hubbard, (202) 783-9360, dhubbard@nbaa.org
Washington, DC, April 6, 2015 – The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) urges its Members to weigh in on a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposal that would significantly reduce the ability of general aviation (GA) and business aviation operations to access critical airports in the New York City area. The agency recently issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that aims to reduce unscheduled slot allocations at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey.
If enacted in its current form, the proposed rule would finalize temporary restrictions on landing slots at these airports that are due to expire on Oct. 29, 2016, in what the FAA called, “a longer-term and comprehensive approach to slot management at JFK, EWR and LGA.”While slot restrictions on commercial airline operations have been in place at these airports for decades, only LaGuardia currently imposes a slot limitation of three unscheduled operations per hour between 6 a.m. and 9:59 p.m. local time. The NPRM would keep those restrictions in place at LGA, while also limiting unscheduled operations during most of the day at EWR to one slot per hour, and two slots per hour at JFK.
Learn more about the NYC-area airport slot restrictions.
Doug Carr, NBAA’s vice president for regulatory and international affairs, noted that such restrictions would impact many types of GA and business aviation operations, including emergency organ transport and air ambulance flights.
"This proposal significantly threatens the ability to access vital airports in New York and New Jersey," Carr continued. "The FAA’s evaluation fails to consider a number of critical data points, including why unscheduled operations utilize these airports, and also the significant financial impact this proposal will have on fixed-base operators that support unscheduled operations at the three airports.”
Additionally, factors such as prevailing weather conditions, runway configurations and airport services can often make these airports the best options for an unscheduled operation arriving or departing the New York City area, and such limits could threaten operator safety when conditions favor operating from a larger airport.
The NPRM comment period closes on May 8, and Carr encouraged NBAA Members to review the Association’s resource about the proposed restrictions, and submit their comments opposing the FAA's proposal. Submit comments to the FAA
"The FAA's evaluation of the impact of this proposal on the business aviation community fails to consider the realities of air traffic operations that can make access to other airports difficult,” he added. "Any proposal restricting airport access is cause for concern, and this NPRM would establish a dangerous precedent that negatively affects all business aviation operations."
Operators should also review their use of New York and New Jersey area airports, Carr noted, and determine how the new slot limitations might affect their operations.
Founded in 1947 and based in Washington, DC, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) is the leading organization for companies that rely on general aviation aircraft to help make their businesses more efficient, productive and successful. The Association represents more than 10,000 companies and provides more than 100 products and services to the business aviation community, including the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, the world's largest civil aviation trade show.
