NOTE: Changes to Seattle Class B Airspace
Notice Number: NOTC3358
Seattle's Class B Airspace has changed! On December 15, 2011 the new VFR Terminal Area Chart for the Seattle Class B was issued. The physical shape of the Class B has changed including altitudes, radials and distances. Don't become a pilot deviation statistic because you don't have a new chart and fly into Class B airspace by mistake!

Aircraft Washing: Washington State Dept. of Ecology is requiring the Port to ensure that all Aircraft are not washed in any area where runoff can get into the storm water system. Aircraft can be washed on surfaces that are pervious, ie. grass and dry washing in your hangar is fine.
- Full Story
The Port does have a car wash kit that you can borrow for wet washing. They are currently designing a wash stand that will meet the D of E rules and will replace the one situated by Vertex Aviation. We know that this is a pain, but please work with the Port on this issue, it is not their fault!
For answers to any questions, contact: Sara Young or call (360) 757-0011.
Renew membership: If you still haven't renewed your 2012 membership, please do. The more Skagit Pilots we have as members the greater our influence will be with the Port. It is only $25.00 a year. Thanks.
