We wish you a warm welcome to Skypark, the flying community, where the whole family can enjoy flying at its best. Skypark is more than and airport..More than a residential development…It is a place to enjoy a fantastic hobby and meet interesting people.
A dream of Daniel E Weltzien for a compatibility of home and airplane, finally realized. The family auto and family airplane can share the same garage, driveway and street.
For those who enjoy group activities, a dinner flight to a distant city or a backyard barbecue…Skypark is the place.
The pilot who flies at Skypark will find the activities centering around the family and friends. From a dance in the community room, to a party in the Tiki Room, to the events at summer celebration to trips planned and taken to new or old favorite places.
Skypark offers an excellent flight training program from the basic private pilot to the certified flight instructor and ATP. Skypark also offers a unique co-pilot program geared to the non-flyer…giving them the knowledge and confidence to enjoy flying at its fullest.
Skypark has a condominium association to ensure that Skypark will always be an Airport.
Here at Skypark flying is a way of life in order to maintain the community and the airport in an orderly manner… the following rules have been established.
Rules for flying Skypark aircraft

AIRCRAFT WITHOUT ELECTRIC STARTERS SHALL BE RESTRAINED BY ONE PERSON IN THE COCKPIT OR BY TIEING THE TAIL DOWN WHEN PROPPING.
WHEN TAXIING AN AIRCRAFT ON THE RAMP, CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO PROPS BLOWING DIRT ON PEOPLE AND PROPERTY. WHEN TAXIING IN TIGHT QUARTERS, DON’T STAND ON ONE BRAKE….BLAST THE THROTTLE AND PIVOT. IF THE QUARTERS ARE TOO TIGHT…SHUT DOWN THE ENGINE, GET OUT AND MOVE THE PLANE BODILY (THIS IS THE REASON FOR TOWBARS IN THE AIRCRAFT). THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IN THE AREA AROUND THE GAS PUMPS, ADMINISTRATION BUILDING AND IN FRONT OF THE MAINTENANCE HANGER DOOR.
ALL AIRCRAFT SHALL BE TAXIED AT A SAFE SPEED WITH DUE REGUARD FOR OTHER AIRCRAFT, PERSONS AND PROPERTY. NEVER TAXI AN AIRCRAFT ON ANY GRASS. THIS MIGHT RESULT IN A VERY EXPENSIVE MANEUVER (i.e. PROP STRIKE, AIRCRAFT STRIKE OR A BAD BACK FROM PUSHING THE AIRCRAFT THROUGH SOFT SOIL).

RUN-UP AND PREFLIGHT CHECKS SHOULD BE MADE ON THE RUN-UP PADS. CARE MUST BE TAKEN AT ALL TIMES SO THAT PROPELLER BLAST DOES NO DAMAGE AND EXTRA CARE MUST BE EXCERCISED IN THE RUN-UP POSITION SO THAT IT DOES NOT BLOW INTO HANGARS. HOUSES OR ON PARKED OR TAXIING AIRCRAFT.
THE LAST TURN BEFORE STARTING A TAKE-OFF ROLL SHALL BE MADE IN THE DIRECTION OF INCOMING TRAFFIC. i.e. A RIGHT TURN FOR LEFT HAND PATTERN.
WHEN TAXIING AIRCRAFT APPROACH EACH OTHER HEAD-ON IN THE STRIP, EACH MUST GIVE WAY TO HIS RIGHT, AND BOTH MUST REMAIN ON THE TAXI AREA IF POSSIBLE, AND NOT VEER ONTO THE ACTIVE RUNWAY. WHEN AIRCRAFT AND AUTOMOBILES MEET HEAD-ON IN THE STREET/TAXIWAY, THE AUTO SHALL GIVE WAY TO THE NEAREST DRIVEWAY.
AT TIMES, DUE TO SNOW, MUD, ETC…IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAINTAIN ONLY ONE USABLE STRIP FOR RUNWAY AND TAXIWAY, AIRCRAFT PREPARING TO LAND UNDER THESE CONDITIONS SHALL GIVE WAY TO TAXIING AIRCRAFT, EXCEPT OF COURSE, IN AN EMERGENCY. IF THE LANDING AREA IS NOT CLEAR OF THE OTHER AIRCRAFT, THE LANDING AIRCRAFT SHALL FLY A GO AROUND PATTERN. BEFORE BEGINNING TO TAXI OUT FOR TAKE-OFF UNDER THESE CONDITIONS, MAKE CERTAIN NO AIRCRAFT ARE IN THE PATTERN FOR LANDING. STAY ON THE HARD SURFACE RUNWAY AS YOU WILL PROBABLY BURY THE AIRCRAFT…DAMAGE THE PROPELLER…AND CLOSE THE RUNWAY. REMEMBER.THE AIRCRAFT IN THE AIR IS MORE MANEUVERABLE.

Scheduling aircraft and instructors
Schedulemaster is the system used at Skypark for all of the Rental aircraft and Instructors. This system is a website on the Internet and also has a “1-800” number to use if a computer is not available. All functions can be accessed by either Internet or telephone. Schedulemaster will aid in the efficiency of scheduling of Skypark aircraft and Skypark Instructors. It was made to ensure that when you, as a rental member, schedule an aircraft or Instructor, that time cannot be changed except by the person that made that appointment or Skypark management.
How Schedule Master Works
ELIGIBILITY: In order to schedule on this system the following must be in effect and on file at Skypark Airport:
1. Skypark account must be in the black(which is a negative number in quickbooks) or the system will lock you out from scheduling of aircraft or Instructors.
2. Copy of current BFR date. If on file, system will remind you 60 days prior to expiration that it is due.
3. Copy of current Medical. If on file, system will remind you 60 days prior to expiration that it is due.
4. Students must have a copy of their current Solo sign-off on file to receive a 90 day “BFR” date otherwise they will get a 30 day “BFR” date in order to schedule. These dates will constantly change until the Student receives their Pilot’s license.
5. Membership information and Schedulemaster information sheet must be kept current with change of addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and pertinent aviation data.
SCHEDULING ON THE INTERNET
Go on your Internet Server and go to the Website which is “www.scheulemaster.com/smlogin.htm. When this website appears it will ask for your username and a PIN number. This is an assigned 4-digit PIN and is your membership # that cannot be changed and can only be used with your permission. After entering this information, either a User tab or a Schedule tab will come up. If the User tab appears, it will give you your BFR date and medical date if it is due within 60 days of that time. You should use the User file to update your Schedulemaster records including your e-mail address. If the information in the Eligibility paragraph above is not current it will tell you that you are not allowed to schedule. If the Schedule tab comes up, you may start scheduling Skypark rental aircraft and Skypark Contracted Instructors.
6. Enter all the selection criteria, including the specific resource that you want (N# or Instructor, etc.) start and end date and time, using military time. Select Display and choose a one day calendar, etc. Select ‘make’ for the action and press submit. This will give you a calendar and show specifics of the different schedules.
7. Enter the start and end date and time. Select ‘view’ for the action, and ‘List by N#’ or ‘list by date’ for the display and press submit. When the page reloads, a ‘Push to Schedule’ button will be displayed for each resource that matches your request. Click the button for the resource that you want.
8. In order that you may cancel a schedule, enter the selection criteria for the time period of interest, ‘view’ as ‘list by N#’ or ‘List by Date’ and press submit. When the page reloads, ‘Push to Schedule’ button will be displayed for each . Click the button for the schedule you want to cancel. Note that you may optionally select ‘just me’ for ‘pilot’ and set the start or end dates to restrict the schedules displayed and also reduce the time required to load the page
SCHEDULING OVER THE PHONE AND CANCELLATION OF AIRCRAFT
The number to be used for scheduling and cancellations over the telephone is 1-800-414-6114. All you do is dial and listen to the prompts. Cancellations can be done up to two (2) hours prior to time the aircraft is scheduled. After 6-1-2002, a charge of $5.00 can be assessed for non-cancellation and abuse of the scheduling system (i.e., scheduling for longer and not using the aircraft.)
Scheduling C-172 aircraft on the weekends
It is Skypark’s purpose to provide aircraft (C-150, C-152, C-172’s) for training and aircraft personal use trips (C-172). Skypark has five (5) aircraft (C-150,C-152) for primary instruction and seven (4) aircraft for personal use.
Student pilots will only be scheduling for two (2) hours per lesson on weekends in order to make available for ALL pilots. This restriction applies only to the C-172’s.
More than two (2) hour blocks will have to be pre-approved by Skypark management.
Scheduling of aircraft more than 30 days in advance is not permitted. Exceptions can be made for a pilot planning on using a cross country aircraft to go on vacation and is planning further out than the 30 day restriction.
Aircraft that have been scheduled for MORE than 4 hours for reasons other than weather must be cancelled 24 hours in advance. It has always been the policy at Skypark that if the keys for an aircraft have not been taken after 15 minutes of scheduled time for a LOCAL lesson or 30 minutes for a CROSS COUNTRY flight, that aircraft is no longer scheduled and is free to be taken by anyone.
NO-SHOWS AND NON-CANCELLATION OF SCHEDULES WILL BE CHARGED:
$5.00 FOR Local flight
$10.00 for Cross country flights.
To eliminate the possibility of being charged, anyone can go to VIEW MY NOTIFICATIONS on the schedule page and click on it. It will bring up three types of notification you can have. If you click on REMINDERS it will notify your e-mail in plenty of time for your to cancel.
