With the pending Part 141 certification for our Maxson Airfield location, I made a trip up to do paperwork and visit our North Andover Flight Academy New York office. The weather was typical upstate New York – but only as far north as Watertown. As we were told by the locals last summer, the snow belt stopped as soon as we were North of Watertown. Maxson Airfield and Alexandria Bay were almost perfectly clear! Some snow showers moved through, but our Boston Massachusetts helicopter school actually has more snow on the ground than Maxson.
We snapped this photo just before rolling in for the evening. Our facilities at Maxson airfield include several hundred square feet of hangar space (with space available for rent), large multiple offices (offices available for rent as well), and a fuel farm. Yes – we purchase our own aviation fuel!
After attending to 141 paperwork, we decided to call it a day. Lake effect snows continued South of our field, but luckily the showers stayed south.
Come visit our Asst. Chief instructor David in Alexandria Bay New York. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the sights (and the helicopter school of course).
