    Last year the app was unusable because it wouldn't even come up when there was no internet data (and there was none for a bulk of the busiest days). This year the dead times were much better...

    The NOTAM acronym is now officially NOTICE TO AIR MISSIONS. It's politically correct to call it NOTAM still.

    Vendors should be using the expo company (at least during prime hours) rather than driving into the exhibit areas.

    The new signage was a big improvement. I still think they should list all the stops (similar to most mass transit systems) ahead rather than just the next one. The Scholler gate turnaround is...

    A few years ago right at sunset, they launched a bunch of powered parachutes as some "fun flight" demo.
