Some aviators in Thailand were recently discussing the idea of joining Ban Thi
Airport with Nok airport (by extending Ban Thi's runway) to make them both
one airport. Since the airports are so close, this would be an excellent way
to increase safety and promote General Aviation in Thailand. If Ban Thi and
Nok were joined, then this would create the largest airpark in all of Asia.
07 Mar 2011 -- NOK FREQUENCY
-- The 123.00 frequency for NOK local procedure was confirmed and agreed by
Khun Somboon (Aerothai CNX) - provided pilots first tell ATC on 129.60 and
remain within NOK Class G airspace below 2000'. Before terminating it would
be desirable to call CNX App.129.60 to tell them - you will still be
required to call the tower by telephone with landing time. They (CNX ATC)
will not be monitoring 123.00. We (NOK) will publish the procedure in our
Ops Manual/ Club Noticeboard and website.
