TFR ALERT! 9-29-16
BANGOR, ME ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2016 . A NOTAM has been published (FDC
6/0842) that will affect flight in the area during President Obama's planned
Runway Assessment and Condition
Reporting, Effective October 1, 2016
9-28-16 Here's a excerpt from Steve's Bourque email about RCAM
that takes effect on October 1st. "The FAA is

such as ice, snow and slush and even water. These changes are intended
to convey runway conditions to pilots which they can use to assess how
the contaminants will affect their particular aircraft's performance.
The RCAM (Runway Condition Assessment Matrix) is designed to more objectively
convey runway conditions through a NOTAM. Embedded in the field condition
NOTAM's you will now see a Runway Condition Code (RwyCC) which is a numerical
value from between 0 to 6, with 6 being dry pavement." more...

VFR flying with visibility's of 30 to 50 miles on a regular basis. Going
for a ride in September in 80 degree weather is unusual to say the least.
