Historic Airport forced to shut down due to Trump’s “Summer White House”

Erwinna, PA — President Trump is planning to use his Bedminster golf club as his weekend home.  A special Temporary Flight Restriction will be activated on those weekends which means that no general aviation flying will be allowed in a 10-mile radius and no flying without a flight plan in a 10-30-mile radius.  So Van Sant, who offers biplane rides and glider rides, mainly on weekends, will be shut down.
