Why no email contact?

Well…to put it bluntly - I get WAY TOO MUCH SPAM! If you have a legitimate question, please call us. Leave a message on the machine. We check the phone a lot more often than the email. We’d rather talk to you than type anyway…thanks.

Partial Parallel Taxiway Open for Business!
November 14, 2006 2:03 pm
At this time the newly constructed partial parallel taxiway is open for use. It is lit (PCL) paved & striped, however, signage and our two new windsocks have not yet arrived for installation. They should arrive & be installed during the first few weeks of December. The taxiway will be closed for those items to be installed so stay tuned and check those NOTAMs! (since it will be a local NOTAM)
Parallel Taxiway Project
September 25, 2006 7:53 am
…is currently underway. The schedule of work provided by the contractor, Bridgecorp, shows a completion date of November 30, 2006! Looks like paving will happen soon as the new taxiway is at the same level as the ramp and there are a few coats of gravel appearing. One team is working on the installation of the new windsock & segmented circle. More to come!

Okay - its now official. The runway is NOTAMd closed Monday thru Wednesday July 24-26, 2006, for sealing of the blacktop.
Of course, check with official NOTAM sources prior to planning any flights into or out of IWI. (I.e. Get a pre-flight brefing).
The contractor, Sealcoating, will begin work at 7 AM on Monday the 24th. They estimate that work will take 2-1/2 days. Unless it’s pouring rain, they can work.
The NOTAM will be cancelled as soon as the work is complete and the area has been cleaned and inspected.
If you have any questions, please give us a ring or email.
