Runway surface conditions

You may have seen AOPA’s Passport Challenge, handing out prizes for landing at grass strips – this is a gentle reminder of GFT’s Renter/Student Ops Manual regulation 5.6E which states “Operations into any field other than paved surfaces (soft, gravel, sand, grass, etc) are prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Director of Operations, Chief or Assistant Chief Flight Instructor.

Thank you for helping keep our planes in good condition!
