Well, I'm live in the north too, but for best light I'll prefer later part of fall, or early spring (especially when the ground is snow-covered), OK, you'll probably freeze your ass off, if you're outdoor all the time, but if you catch some heat in the car it's OK. I'm talking about the sunny days, when the sun is closer to the horizon. But, of course the summer is very nice too, you can stay outdoor all day long without freezing at all
(and the girls/women don't wear that much clothing either... ).

here at TRI the best time of year is spring-fall....winter isn't that great b/c the sun takes a long time to swing over to the right side of the runway...(5/23, usually using 23)....i have found a good morning taxi-out spot but i'm not sure how that will be in the summer, but it might work...as far as afternoons at TRI, right now it's good from about 3pm on if it's clear...
i love shooting in the wintertime in places like FLL/MIA, b/c the sun tracks lower in the sky, giving you a better sun angle...but i love shooting in summer at DFW and TRI, CLT, etc...because the days are longer and i can get more photos...speaking of i need to get to CLT sometime this spring now that the overlook is open again!

Around the DC area the fall and early winter seem to give us the best light. By late winter and spring the sun is already too high for anything but morning or evening shots. OTOH, the longer days mean we can get flights that we can't in the winter.
