E16 WIFI Network Details PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Brogley   
Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Your SCAPA Board of Directors have recently fielded some questions from members regarding access to the county-run WIFI network available on E16 - here are the details:

The County-maintained wireless network is accessible from the south end of the tie down area up through the county hangars, and pilots can use this network to access the internet using username E16 and password E16 (case sensitive). The network has been stable and working well for over a year now since the last set of SCAPA-facilitated repairs in February 2013. Users report good connectivity throughout the county hangar area and down through the south tie-down ramp.

Please note that Patrick and the rest of the County airports folks continue to be concerned about network security, and as an aspect of that concern they request that the airport WIFI login information remain closely held, with information being provided only to valid South County Airport users. This note is restricted to registered SCAPA web site users for that reason.

ELT's and PLB's

Presented by Herb Patten

Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) are becoming cheaper and more reliable. Why would a pilot need a PLB if they already have an onboard ELT? How would a PLB help a pilot in an emergency? What is a PLB anyway?
