Forgive me if this was a overpost.
Hi there. Check out the new white blocks painted on the gravel (new gravel) runway at Palmer. There will be more gravel runways with these blocks painted on them. It was a effort from the Safety Team (FAAST). Kudos to them for doing something that is needed. I played with them all day long. There are white blocks painted every 50 foot on the runway. They are used to determine how short you are taking off and landing. I am using them as a aiming point for the students and for the advanced guys alike. I now know how bad I really am at landing... Let me know what you think of them so I can provide some good feedback to the FAA.
