The Derby City Flyout

About the Event:

Welcome to the fourth installment of my “underserved hubs” series. In this series, I’m focusing on smaller airline hubs in IF that don’t get as much attention as they deserve.

About SDF:

Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport my home airport, for those who don’t know (IATA: SDF, ICAO: KSDF, FAA LID: SDF) is a public and military use public airport in Louisville in Jefferson County, Kentucky. The airport covers 1,500 acres (6km²) and has three runways. Its IATA airport code, SDF, is based on the airport’s former name, Standiford Field. It has no regularly-scheduled international passenger flights, but it is a port of entry, as it handles numerous international cargo flights.

Over 3.8 million passengers and over 5.7 billion pounds (2,890,000t) of cargo passed through the airport in 2018. It is also the third-busiest in the United States in terms of cargo traffic, and seventh-busiest for such in the world. The Airport was renamed as Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport in January. The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a “primary commercial service” airport since it has over 10,000 passenger boardings (enplanements) per year. As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 1,684,738 enplanements in 2017, an increase of 3.26% from 1,631,494 in 2016.

The airport is home to Worldport, the worldwide hub of UPS. The Kentucky Air National Guard’s 123d Airlift Wing operates C-130 transport aircraft from the co-located Louisville Air National Guard Base.

@Will_A @Guxk @GraceHopper either you three edit/delete your posts or I’m not signing you up. I will not tolerate any such behavior.


The 747-8i flies here… that is the same aircraft class. I’m sure it will work as long as we are parked in the corporate aprons.

There is a very important family from Singapore… the Young family? You may have heard of them.

I’ll be taking Nick and his wife Rachel to New York, and Guxk will ferry their cargo. Grace is taking their external relatives for a weekend at their house in MSN. They have rented out some of Airbuses newest A380’s for use.


It is imperative that our clients receive the service requested. Maybe we could slip you a little something if you look the other way hint hint. If not, we will be severely disappointed, as our clients lawyers shall be.


Ok. Let’s make a deal. The Young family has rented out three 747-8i aircraft for us. Sound good?


Please stick to the requirements set forth in the original topic. Please PM the organizer for more information.


A03 please.
