SET BRAKES for Parking at M16?

If this has been posted elsewhere, my apologies…

For those chocking only at M16 (if no tiedows), is it permissible, or encouraged, or prohibited to park with the brakes set?

Great question Jim. Of course that is the one question I didn’t ask the Airport!

I’ll call them today and get an answer back as soon as I can. I’ll also send out a Broadcast email to all fly-in Pilots.

Thanks for the heads up.


Thank you again Jim for thinking of this. Here is the response from the Airport:

Affirmative. Please set brakes. Thank you.

I will send out an email to all Fly In Pilots.

In that case, I will bring my small chocks and leave these big boys at home:
