Kevin Dwyer flew in Monday afternoon and found himself our first official Aviation City visitor to be able to use the new restroom. Kevin is from Vermont and heard about us from a friend of his. Unfortunately we had not had time to run the test of the new shower so only the restroom was available but he had lots of hot water there. Today we ran the shower test and all works fine so we are now fully ready for pilots to use the entire facility. Our plan is to keep the restroom on the right side open at all times for X06 pilots to use 24/7. We will open the other restroom and showers for registered guests to Aviation City prior to their arrival.

The dedication plaque got installed today and after the glue dries the staging will be removed and I hope the plaque will stay put. Our dedication ceremony will be Feb 23 at 9:30 am at the pilot shelter. If you made a cash donation to our capital campaign to help fund the new restroom/shower you may attend but we do want you to rsvp to us so we can have a proper head count.
