MARCH YOUNG EAGLES
DAVE DALY RETIRES FROM AIRPORT MANAGEMENT
Dave Daly, our airport manager since 2011, retired last month (January). Mr. Daly was an efficient airport manager who relaxed the highly regulated and severe anti-user conditions enforced by the past manager. He is credited with many forward projects that increased the future success of the Nut Tree Airport. New hangers, re-alignment of the runway, runway repaiving, removal of the Eucalyptus grove, remodeling of the airport building, installation of a high quality pilot's lounge and many more. His actions reguarding the airport master plan improved our standing for Federal funding in the future. We all wish Dave enjoys a great retired life! Thank you for your service!

August 15, 2019 the Nut Tree Airport CTAF will change to 122.85.
The August 15 date coincides with the next publication date of the San Francisco sectional and other FAA charts, and update of all other FAA data bases. Other commercial online aviation websites may lag several days.
It is recommended that pilots with dual Coms monitor 123.05 starting on the August 15, or use a handheld radio if available. It is also advisable to monitor the new CTAF 122.85 leading up to August 15.
The airport will also be requesting assistance starting on August 15, by anyone that might have a handheld or other radio while in their hangar or on the airfield to listen to 123.05 and advise pilots as needed.
The Airport will send out another local email notice prior to August 15, as well as issue NOTAMS leading up to the activation of 122.85. Other airports within the region are also being notified. You are also welcome to start getting the word out, but make sure to note that the CTAF will not change until August 15.
