Tue Feb 05, 2013 2:37 am

The expansion into North Dakota oil country continues, first Williston and now Dickinson.

UA seems to be picking off ZK cities left and right here. Williston, Laramie, Santa Fe, and now Dickinson

Not really a huge surprise there. The state is booming thanks to the oil. My flight school won't even let us fly out to Williston or Dickinson solo because it can get so busy with private jets. Great to see the state getting some more service. Truly a great place to live, just a little cold. Though I hope this is more successful than GFK. I hear they've had a little trouble filling up the planes out here.

Yes it is, loved living in G.F. and the people are awesome up there! However, I do see why GFK isn't more successful, because of the oil in the center/west half, and now with the Base being so minimal, there are that fewer people for travel. We used to send people out commercial fairly often for individual (not bulk) deployments and other official business!

"A little cold" is funny!
