Last saturday around 1 pm--taxiing around in all the madness at ORD, I look out my right window and on 9L in comes a single engine piper 140. i wiped my eyes to make sure i saw what i saw and he bounces a landing right next to a 767 taxiing out the other way. I thought ORD would not even let them transition the airspace let alone land in the middle of the afternoon. Howd that guy get the clearance to do that? is this the same airport when on clear and a million days i get 45 minute edct times?

His landing fee was probably more than i make in a month. I can hear the tower "Luftansa 747 heavy slow 80 to the marker, entrail of a piper 140, contact the tower 126.9"

Most likely, his landing fee was around $10. The Chicago Department of Aviation charged the same fee for landing at MDW, CGX, and ORD. I flew a small plane both into ORD and ATL, and in each case, I paid less then $10 in landing fees. Now Signature fees....that's a whole 'nuther thread.

I flew a C310 into 27L back in '95..... no prob. Just had to have a slot time, and yes the landing fee was pretty expensive. So was the fuel (and this was in '95 when fuel was cheap!) Otherwise, it was just 170 to the marker and get your ass off the runway, now!

.... Thanks Mayor Daley... what a twad. Aren't there enough pilots that live in Chicago to get him voted out? OR...do most people just commute in/out of there.

I took a M20R into ORD in the summer of 2001 and stuck the flight college with the fuel and landing fee. I did have to pay 15 bucks at sabarro I think

My last job was flying a Seneca single pilot 135 which took me into PHL, JFK, LGA, IAD, and EWR. As far as I know (and I do NOT know ORD) they CANNOT refuse anyone. Hell... it was a lot easier going into those places VFR then IFR.

BTW.. it was kinda cool being likely the smallest airplane at those airports at the time.. "Northwest follow.. ahh... light twin piper."

I remember flying a 172 , PA28 and an Aztec into ORD both in the afternoon and middle of the night a few years ago. All you needed was a reservation in the afternoon...when that system was in use (dont know if it still is) nothing at night...and if you just taxi the A loop around the terminal without stoping at Signature sh!t hole..then you don't pay any fees all together!

"Tower N13474"

"474 go"

"474...umm..have kinda of a unique request...can we taxi around the terminal once and then depart"

"474..(laughing)..no problem....turn left..take it around..hold short at 27L..let me know when your ready"
