Airport Monthly has awarded Archerfield Airfield with another award, this time the “Airport of the Month” award for January 2018.

“There are soooooooo many airports,” said a AM staffer, “so getting to the top means your airport has something special.”

Asked whether the airfield was getting special treatment because of the Archerfield Free Post being based there the staffer denied it.

“No, it’s because it has two great fields, a shooting range, kangaroos, a Waterbank News office, a shopping center, a dock, and…” the staffer took a deep breath, “an aviation school, a dock, ZSK, and a possible royal connection to the Duke of Archer.”

Jackson Valley Regional Airport, near Jackson Valley City, altitude 50 may be just a regional field in between some class A airports, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a popular place for pilots to gather.

“It really has charm,” said one pilot unpacking a case of Pernod from her YKS-7 at the field (link to pictured product). “I know one guy, Manu, who brought his Camper (link to product in pic) here twenty years ago and never left!”

Jackson Valley Regional Airport can be found at (link to map), and pilots should be aware that the airfield can only accommodate small to medium craft on Runway 30/12, Alt. 50.

An experienced pilot that has turned the shipping business on its head, Cam Maximus is a rising leader in the business community, with a logistics company spread around the world. TNT is at 15 locations, many of them key transit hubs. Waterbank News asked a few questions of the magnate, and he took time out from his morning brief for pilots that day to answer them.

The New Horizons area, which includes residential, commercial, airport, and port districts, has been listed by the WBA as an “economic boom town.”

“They even have rental units below the runway,” said a rep, “and a town hall. If you look at the area from air you’ll see all the business moving in and out of it. Airlines, TNT, shops, and there are also several communities have built around it too.”

Waterbank Airlines has hit the news again after a whistleblower from the airline came forward and said that the Waterbank Airlines has been a taxi service for the Waterbank Intelligence Agency for several years now.

“The Waterbank News guy asked if anyone wanted to come forward with some dirt to print,” said the WA employee, “and I said ‘sure, I got time to kill. I ain’t had nothin’ to do all day but blow this stupid whistle.”

Scientists are again confounded by the Archerfield Mouse, which appears to have developed a hobby.

“They seem to be watching the planes take off and land,” said one scientist at the airfield. “One will be watching and then another one comes with some kind of food. They nibble on the snacks and track the planes. It’s very unexpected. I swear I once saw one hold up three digits once, just like they were rating the landings.”

Waterbank Airlines has made several black lists after ferrying a paramilitary group to one of the contested islands in the Blake Sea area, angering a number of political groups.

“Civilian airlines have no business moving troops,” said the spokeswoman for the Unhitch Half Hitch Union (UHHU – “yoohoo”). “If Waterbank Airlines tries to land here we’ll blast’em outta the sky!”

A representative from WA was unapologetic. “Oh please. Half Hitch? I’m surprised they know what an airplane is. We are in business, and will ferry anyone for a price. That’s how a business works.”
