FAA Tower Closing

NOTE: The FAA will begin a four-week phased closure of the 149 federal contract towers beginning on April 7.


FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education

Air Traffic Control Facility Closures
Notice Number: NOTC4665

On February 22, 2013, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood and Federal Aviation Administrator (FAA) Michael Huerta jointly announced the possible impacts of a budget sequestration on FAA operations. This announcement included notification of potential closure of over 100 air traffic control towers, with those impending closures beginning April 7, 2013. The FAA has subsequently released a list of 149 control towers that will be closed and the agency has made the decision to keep 24 federal contract towers open, read: Press Release – FAA Makes Tower Closing Decision.

As the probability of these tower closures and reduced operating hours nears, it is important to increase our awareness of proper operating practices and procedures at airports without an operating control tower. Although we often hear these airports called “uncontrolled”, you can help ensure continued safe and controlled operations through adherence to published practices and procedures. Of course, “non-towered airport” is the proper term to use for an airport without an operating control tower.

There are many resources that provide advisory information for operations at airports without an operating control tower. These include the FAA Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM), Advisory Circular (AC) 90-66A , CFR 91.113 (Basic Right of Way Rules), CFR 91.126 and CFR 91.127 (Traffic Flow Rules at Non-Towered Airports).

Please also note that some aeronautical experience for pilot certification requires takeoffs and landings at a towered airport. This may increase activity at the remaining towered airports, and will necessitate diligent planning on the part of training providers, instructors and students.

So, what can I do?

Always check NOTAMs prior to flight.
Communicate, Communicate, Communicate. Remember, communication includes listening, not just transmitting.
Stay alert and continually scan for traffic. This may include turbojet, turboprop or helicopter operators that are not accustom to “standard traffic patterns” at your airport.
Be aware that you may now be sharing the traffic pattern with non-radio equipped aircraft or ultralights.
Spend some time with your CFI improving your knowledge and skills.
Improve your knowledge by completing one or more of the many on-line courses available through the website.

IA Renewal Sponsors Needed



This years TETERBORO AREA IA Renewal seminar/workshop has been scheduled on March 9, 2013 (See below).


Note: Program and registration forms to follow shortly.




The seminar is a month away, it would be extremely helpful if sponsors would “step up” with a commitment!!


Last year, we have had over 175 people at the seminar. We anticipate a similar number at this year’s seminar. This is an excellent opportunity to advertise your Company or organization and support a worthwhile educational activity. All sponsors will have their Company names and/or logo’s on this years seminar “T” shirts.

Open sponsorships and costs are listed on the table below. While we are aware of the economic downturn and it may not be possible to assume an entire sponsorship, we would certainly be willing to “split” a sponsorship (with the exception of trade show tables).


Please contact Neil Nederfield at C & W Aero Services (973-227-5750) to indicate your intent to be a sponsor or to have any questions answered. We look forward to your support


We also need door prize items.. Please discuss this with Neil.

Reminder ~ New A&P Certificates Required

 New A&P Certificates Required




Following a new regulation that went into effect several years ago, certified A&P mechanics must upgrade to a new “credit card” –style plastic by MArch 31, 2013 or lose their A&P privileges.

ALL Certificated Airmen (including mechanics, ATC’s, dispatchers, etc) certified under 14CFR65 are required to change from the “paper” certification to “credit card” style by March 31, 2013.

This rule will not apply to temporary paper certificates issued under §65.13 , but all others must apply for a replacement at the FAA’s registry website.

How to Get the New Certificate

The best way to get new replacement certification is to follow the instructions at

The replacement costs $2.00, unless you still have your SSN as your certification number.



TUG Members and Friends,

NY TRACON and Teterboro ATCT have observed that aircraft departing Teterboro on the RUUDY 4 DEPARTURE have occasionally strayed left of the published initial 240 degree track, perhaps in the interest of avoiding noise sensors.

Both agencies wish to emphasize that pilots MUST adhere precisely to both the lateral and vertical profiles defined in the RUUDY 4, and must refrain from straying left of course for any reason.

Thanks for your prompt attention and professionalism,

Your TUG Leadership
