Insect Repellent at the Airfield!
With all the rain we have had this summer, mosquitos and gnats are becoming a nuisance during the morning and evening hours. To help combat the pests we have added insect repellent to the wash station! Just a reminder, our wash station has regular hand soap, heavy duty hand soap with pumice and hand sanitizer. Also, additional paper towel rolls are located in the storage area.

New FAA Requirement for all Flyers: TRUST Test!
(The Recreational UAS Safety Test)
TRUST (The Recreational UAS Safety Test) is a collaboration between the FAA and industry to provide TRUST and educational safety material to Recreational Flyers who fly unmanned aircraft. Currently there is no deadline to complete this test, however, the test is free to take and easy to pass! The test takes about 30 minutes to complete and can be done anytime. Click on the link below to go to the test, via the AMA website. After completing the test, a certificate will be issued that you can printout and keep with you whenever you fly.
Wildlife at the Flying Field!
This year has seen an abundance of wildlife at the field. First the ground squirrels showed up, followed by the snakes, so be aware of them. Our longhorn neighbors have a few new calves in their herd and a baby deer was spotted near the southeast side of the runway.
Additional Lawnmower Repairs!
Last month the riding mower had a catastrophic failure. The mower gearbox, belt pulley and drivebelt were damaged due to excessive vibration in the drive shaft! Leland Turnbow repaired the gearbox and refurbished the pulley. Gabriel Perez also looked at the lawnmower and found missing bolts on the PTO shaft rear bearing quill and a missing shearing pin on the U joint. Bubba Brotherton and Gary Jones assisted in removing and reinstalling the parts into the mower. Also, thanks to our lawnmowers, Gary Jones, Tom Ungard and Jimmy Gaona who keep the outdoor field looking great.
Leland Turnbow has helped with past repairs on the lawnmower that has saved us from spending hundreds of dollars on new parts. Please support his business, West Texas Game Feeders, at 3312 N. Chadbourne St in San Angelo or visit their website (www.westtexasgamefeeders.com).
