That should be enough time for a transition if it is to occur, right?

So, it says may not sell, buy or USE leaded avgas in "this state".  So if you have 100 LL in your tanks could you no longer fly over Oregon?  Or could you fly over but not land? Or could you fly over and land but then not take off?  Not really looking for a serious answer, just stirring things up.

It's a valid question. Afterall, it's the burned fallout that's more harmful than static Avgas in a tank. I think that was the major excuse to close down Hillsboro.

Wait. Did I miss something? Hillsboro, OR was closed down? Not according to AirNav. Now I'm confused :)

Just read this and the real intent is clear.  The issues keep changing but the mission remains the same.

My Apologies. Should have typed: "I think that was the major excuse to try and close down Hillsboro."
