SLC Proposed Class BSLC Class B Changes Effective 18-Oct-2012

After five years of planning, comments and critique it finally happened: changes to the Salt Lake City Class B became effective 0901Z on October 18, 2012. In a process driven by concerns about large turbine-powered aircraft, the UGAA worked alongside other aviation stakeholders to protect the interests and safety of General Aviation.

While the airspace changes affect everyone differently, we'd like to point out a few that might be especially important to our members:
 - modifications above and around U42, including removal of the surface area to the east,
 - changes near the Kennecott stack, removing some of the granite from the Class B,
 - floor and ceiling changes near Lagoon to help VFR traffic.

A local CFI, Dave Axenty, has published a blog entry HERE which includes detailed information along with his take on the changes.

Hangar Waiting Lists

The web is an amazing place, with all sorts of wondrous information only a click away. You can find Madonna's shoe size *, current tide tables for Shelter Cove*, and maybe even the Salt Lake City Department of Airports' latest hangar waiting lists. Click HERE to view a copy of the wait-list, but don't blame us if you don't like what you see (or if the list is really stale).
