Just curious...the last time i was at the moline airport, was on january 7, 1987. I was wondering if or how much it has changed since then. (p.s. how do i go about typing in those different faces that everyone uses?)

The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

I have not been to Moline in years, last time I was there I fly on a carrier called Mississippi Valley. And to add smiley faces look at the line under the box after you type a message there is a link right there.

Recently flew out of MLI and I was quite surprised. Brand new terminal and a wonderful parking lot.

MLI is now known as the Quad City International Airport. The "new" terminal was built in the mid-1980's and has been expanded. The only carrier operating main line jets into MLI is AirTran. The old "1954 Terminal" was torn down. The link for the Airport website is www.qcairport.com.

I'll try this again and see if it works, dang computer  Angry !!!

I flew there on my long CC for my private liscence. The airport handles less than 200 flights a day, so I don't know how they can justify class C airspace at that airport. I know of far busier airports in class E and G airspaces in the US. When I was using north app, they were basically vectoring me to the airport and a skyhawk some ways in front of me and maybe a GA aircraft transitioning to Davenport, IA. When I was on the CT frequency, I was the only one talking peroid, and when I landed there I counted about 16 GA aircraft on the ground and what appeared to be a DC-9 freighter. When I used dep ctl on the south end, they were basically providing me with flight following and clearing about two or three aircraft for inst approaches. Not a busy airport at all.

I was in MLI in late october 2003. Flew there on United Express from ORD. The airport was really nice, not a huge one but it seemed very pleasant. I didn't spend much time there but from what i saw i was impressed with it.

Mainly they justify Class C because of IFR traffic en route, and because there are about 40-50 commercial flights per day in and out of MLI. Also there are a few relatively heavy traffic Class E and G airports around (Davenport, Clinton, Galesburg, Muscatine). The DC-9-30 freighter you saw was Airborne Express, Flys out every night to somewhere...haven't figured out where. FedEx flys 3 caravans out per night also. Mostly is an RJ airport right now but AirTran flys 3 717's in per day i believe, and for RJ's they get from Comair, United Express, Northwest Airlink, and American Connection...i think AC only flies ATR's. Their is a new terminal, i believe the airport has 8 gates all with Jetways. From a pilots standpoint the folks in the tower are the nicest folks. I have been to many D C and B airports and Centre's in my flying career but i have yet to find anyone has pleasant as the folks at QC. I guess i consider QC my home airport too.
