Craig Airport Pilots Association Goals

  • Build a community of people interested in Craig Airport and Flying
  • Share information about Airport operations, Social events and Flying in General


Hello All,

I have had a few request to store aircraft in the 607 hangar. I will start letting those place their aircraft in the hangar starting this morning at 9am. We will close and lock up the hangar at 3:30pm today and it will not be open until 7am Monday, weather permitting. If you choose to place your aircraft in the hangar an authorize signature is require on a hold harmless prior to placing the aircraft inside. I've attached this hold harmless with this email. On Monday once the hangar is open, please make sure your aircraft is removed within 24 hours. If you have a question about these conditions, give me a call.

I am sure this will not come as a surprise to anyone, but at this time we do not plan to hold the April 18th BBQ. Many people have provided input on the event and I want to thank all of them. On the bright side we have most of the planning done so when we have the all clear, will get this back on the schedule.

Stay safe, as pilots we practice risk management and decision making every flight, now is the time to apply that knowledge to making sure our families, neighbors and communities are safe. Looking forward to when we can all get together again.

While we are not planning any in person events events in the near future, CAPA has become a network to communicate through our community. If anyone has a need to communicate among us please reach out and one of our admins or I can help with this or join us on Facebook.

Many of our email list is already on our Facebook group. If you are not, I encourage you to join as this has some additional traffic, some of it is even interesting. "Craig Airport Pilots Group" You must ask to join but we usually get most people in within the hour if done at a reasonable hour.

Remember IMC club is for everyone (Students to ATPs and even the curious non pilot). Go ahead and RSVP so Meredith knows about how many are coming. https://www.holladayaviation.com/eaa-imc-club/

Starting to think about 2020 and what we should do as a group. I plan to have a least one hangar Coffee, we have had one each previous year. The BBQ was fun so we will try another one before it gets too hot. What other ideas do you have that you would participate in?

I started a discussion on our facebook group but if you are not on FB, please reply to this email with your thoughts.

Feeling bad because you meant to RSVP to the Holiday party this Saturday (December 7) at Craig and forgot? All is not lost, reply to this email and we will add you to the list. We just need to get a count of attendees so we have enough food.

BTW Thank you to all those that have already RSVP'd, you all can ignore this email.

We are providing Burgers, Hot Dogs and Drinks (Soda and water). We also will have condiments, plates and plastic-ware. Please consider bringing a side or dessert to share.

Party is Saturday, 11 AM - 2 PM (1600Z-1900Z), at Durkeeville Hangar 6307. For those not familiar, Durkeeville is the first right after you enter the airport. Go to the gate and we will let you in (the secret password is FEED ME). Please park such that you don't block the road or any hangars and as always be careful. As for finding the exact hangar, look for the people standing around making food.

The Short Field Landing Contest will now be held on Sunday November 17, 2019.

Rain and low clouds are forcing us to move the Young Eagles/Landing Contest to this Sunday the 17th.

You should be notified directly if you were involved but if not, consider yourself notified. All timing to remain the same, just come a day later.

From: David Cristol

From Brad Martin;


Dorian is expected to impact our area late Sunday or early Monday morning. JAXEX will make available Hangar 607 for aircraft on a first come basis Friday at 8am till 5pm. Please only use this option with the understanding that Tuesday morning would be the earliest the Hangar would reopen. Also those wanting to use the hangar will need to have the owner or an authorized representative sign a Hold Harmless agreement (attached) prior to placing aircraft in hangar. Please note type of aircraft and tail number at the bottom of the hold harmless form. You can scan the form back to me via email or bring the form by the office, you can slide under the door if no one is in.
