Operator Procedures

Fueling Aircraft

Self-serve is available on the east side of the terminal building. Fuel cards for self-serve can be found in the glove compartment or right front pocket of the aircraft. You can also call Alliance (FBO on the field) for fuel deliveries to the tiedowns (717-735-9507).

Access to Aircraft

Aircraft keys and clipboard are kept at the front desk. Please fill in name, contact info, and destination on invoice inside of the clipboard and leave yellow carbon copy in the tray. White copy stays in clipboard and goes with you to the aircraft. Confirm Hobbs/Tach times are accurate.

Returning the Aircraft

Record Hobbs and Tach end times on white invoice. Retrieve yellow copy at front desk and calculate time flown so it appears on both copies. Yellow copy is yours to keep, white copy goes in the basket of completed invoices also located on the front desk.

Getting Reimbursed if You Buy Fuel Elsewhere

Staple fuel receipt to white copy of invoice. If the amount you paid per gallon is less than the Self-Serve rate published on for KLNS, you will be credited the amount of your fuel purchase. If it is higher than the published self-serve rate at KLNS, you will be reimbursed at the self-serve rate.

Mechanical Problems at Another Airport

Call the office at Aero-Tech or one of the contact numbers listed in the clipboard. Any repairs unauthorized by Aero-Tech personnel are YOUR responsibility.

Securing the Aircraft Post-Flight

Taxi into the grass behind the tiedowns at slow speed with the yoke held fully aft. Pull into any of the tiedown spaces.

What Fuel Load to Expect, and How to Change It

We do our best to have the aircraft topped off when you arrive to rent. If you would prefer a different fuel loading, please let us know in advance.

Local Airspace Considerations

Standard Departure Procedures

Give ground control direction of flight and expect “on course” after departure. Reporting clear of the airspace is not necessary.

Best Way to Get Flight Following

Departing northeast, use Reading approach on 125.15 after clearing the Lancaster airspace. For all other directions, use Harrisburg approach on 126.45.

Typical TFR Considerations

DC SFRA airspace (especially 60 nm ring) is nearby and requires special training certificate. P-40 is more distant but still a concern. Be aware of Vice presidential TFR at Wilmington.

Local Airfield Operations

Taxiing to the runways

Expect Rwy 31 for most departures

Run Up Area

Air carrier arrival paths to be avoided

Local Terrain Considerations

Hills on the north side of the airport make it challenging to spot inbound from the North.
