17 flights - N2092L (Skyward Aviation)

"Propeller aircraft operations for April 2011 increased 17% from the 7,509 propeller aircraft operations recorded during April 2010." Pages 1 & 2 go into detail on the type of traffic that has increased. The number of operations (take-offs and/or landings) is expected to increase as the economy continues to improve.
