Re: Kentucky Aviation Thread - 2019

Ahead of the Derby, US CBP has announced that international GA flights into SDF will now be able to clear Customs at SDF rather than enter the US through another airport before continuing on to SDF. https://www.bizjournals.com/louisville/news/2019/04/26/international-passengers-now-can-clear-customs...

Noob question so please don't pounce on me, but is it possible that Indigo pulled out of talks in order to let WOW fold so that they could then swoop in and purchase the AOC and remnants at below firesale prices?

Re: Airports with approaches in close proximity to city centers

SDF. Final for 17 L/R is directly over downtown Louisville. It's always fun when I get called in to work from the office in downtown and a UPS 748 flies overhead. Planes are usually at about 2500 feet when they fly over my office building.

Re: Reuters: United to add premium seats on regional and mainline jets
