From the C.E.O.
Our web-site had 5,670 Visits in April.
www.bluegrassairlines.com will be migrating to a new server sometime during May.
This should be a painless and transparent procedure as far as you are concerned, but
there could be interruptions to the forum and the pirep reporting system.† Donít panic,
keep track of your unreported flights and report them when the system is operational.
We will soon be moving to an automated ďreal-timeĒ pirep and roster system similar to the G.A.A.R system.
Thatís all for now,
Bill Von Sennet
