Jeffco airport is now officially Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport! :censored:
We get to call it Jeffco until the 25th, then its 'metro'. I talked to a few pilots at BJC yesterday, and I haven't yet found one that likes the new name.

I flew yesterday, by the way. Stalls, slow flight, touch and goes, engine out procedures, but the highlight was the short approach at the end! Short approaches are really fun! :D

Was there a chance for pilots to voice there opinion on the :new: name for the airport? If not I can understand their displeasure in the name change :thumbsdown: . Thanks for sharing this news Ben :yes: . Happy Flying.

As far as I know, there was not. If there was, it seems as if advocates for the new name did their best to stop the word from spreading, typical....

Too bad, I do not know why people change names of airports, oh well.

It doesn't make sense to me. If it had something to do with sponsorship I would iunderstand but there are no corporate brand names in the airport.
