Raytheon has a couple of requests from us and there has been some concern over the close proximity of the McConnell AFB Class D Airspace. If you are planning on attending BAC Fest, Click the Title Above to find out more information.
BAC Fest Info
We have been requested by Raytheon to bring your own chocks as well as tie downs that will work in the grass. We will be parking along the old runway at the southwest corner of Raytheon, by the plant 2 entrance.
Beech Field Arrival Instructions
Beech Field Tower is open until 7:00 PM on Wed, Thurs, and Friday. If you can schedule your flights to arrive before 7:00 PM, that would be best. If you know you will be arriving after 7:00 PM, please contact Dave Buttram directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for any special instructions.
Beech Tower has already talked to Wichita Approach and McConnell AFB and they are aware that we are coming. If you are coming in IFR you will have no problems. If you are coming in VFR all that you need to do is to contact Beech Tower on 126.8 when you are 15-20 miles out and they will let you know the best way to proceed. The Beech Factory Field frequencies are:
Ground/Clearance Delivery 121.7
Also, in the event one departs when the tower is closed, clearance delivery frequency will be 125.0 at Wichita.
