New Tower In Operation?


Well-Known Member
Hey all. I graduated the CIME program last May then left for Ohio. I was just curious if the new tower is operational yet? It was built when I left but that was about it.
I don't know if it's open, but I was just recalling that someone wrote in to the Press-Journal last year that the new tower looked like a WWII German flak tower. Achtung, baby!
Yeah it's been up and running for a couple weeks now. They had a few bugs to iron out at first but the transition was pretty smooth. I haven't gotten to take a tour yet but I quess they have put in a bunch of upgrades- like how much radar info they can recieve. It's also nice that the controlers can see the entire field now . They had a lot of blind spots before....
