I notice they've done a lovely new paint job on the runway, Friday. Getting ready for the Ryder cup.
Incidentally the NFC will shut down for the duration of the Ryder cup. Probably other operators too.

It's not a non-event. The airport is now closed from 6 pm almost every day (the days when Kieran is in the tower are the exception, not the rule). That means no lessons in the evening for any FTO, which is a significant blow to those of us whose training is confined to weekends and evenings. I imagine it's a serious loss of revenue to the FTOs also, who had previously operated to the end of VFR.
It seems that the changes were rushed into place to facilitate the Ryder Cup at the K.Club. Mark my words, I bet that there will be further revisions to the airspace changes not long after the last exec. jet belonging to some famous golfer, has left Weston.
Jim Mansfield saw a good opportunity to make a few bob and he took it, to hell with his regulars. He knows we'll still be here after the Ryder Cup. Where else can you go to get the same facilities?
It's a shame, but watch this space, further revisions are on the way, some time in October I'd say.
