Do you still need to add ADS-B capability to your aircraft? The rebate is BACK! Per the latest FAAST Blast:

"The FAA is offering $500 rebates to owners of fixed-wing, single-engine piston aircraft with the purchase of avionics that have received an ADS-B Technical Standard Order authorization and meet ADS-B Out requirements. The program ends 10/11/19 or when all rebates have been claimed. For step-by-step instructions on how to reserve, validate, and claim your ADS-B rebate, read the FAA Safety Briefing article “Show Me the $$” at: http://bit.ly/adsbrebate. You can read this and more ADS-B related articles in our Jan/Feb 2019 issue at 1.usa.gov/FAA_ASB".

On our monthly fly-out in November to Watertown, WI, we discovered the Perkins restaurant adjacent to the airport is closed. There is a nice restaurant called 'The Spot' which is about 1 mile north on RT 26. In nice weather a nice walk from the airport, or use the crew car if available.

From Ole 6/20/2017......

I flew to Milwaukee’s Timmerman Airport today with George Haupt and George Roby.

The FBO there now charges a $ 10 parking fee, - they call it Ramp Fee – this is new, never did that before.  The fee is waived if you buy at least 10 gallons of fuel.  Present price is 4.28 per gallon.
