Max Sez: Knew it was a lie! They kept telling me "Slow movers never fly into A “B” Class Aerodrome. BS !
I just want to say that this is awesome
I love the approach controllers reaction 😂
- the guy who did this contacted tower a few days before, by phone, at 3am (to avoid busy time) to let them know in advance this would happen
- he landed outside of busy hours
- clearly the reaction of the approach controller is pretty self explanatory (“not sure they’ll approve that”)
So yes, it can happen. But only under special conditions (see above). Try to do that during the day with no advance warning, I bet you will feel much less welcome.
I remembering watching that browsing the tube a bit ago. V. Interesting
@lollip… MaxSez:There are always exceptions to every rule! At one point on this Forum There where those that where convinced that GA where not permitted to recover at Class “B” aerodromes. They beat that dead horse to death and lead the community astray, particularly the Fledglings who have a thirst for learning according to Hoyal and not by antidotes and by guess an by God! Trust but verify! (Unwelcome at a “B” maybe, but so what! These type operations are authorized by the FAR. (" B" NOTAM are on file, O’Hare has no published guidance or restriction on low speed operations. Always consult the FSS or Regional TRACOM if in doubt!)
Remember; There are Old Pilots & Bold Pilots but there are very few Old, Bold Pilots!
