The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

The Aero Experience looks back on the month of February with this General Aviation (and More!) Survey. In this edition, we will present a variety of aircraft we encountered during our visits to St. Louis Downtown Airport, Farmington, MO Regional Airport and St. Louis-Lambert International Airport.
The Midwest was enjoying an unusually pleasant winter until last week, when the temperatures went down into the teens and 6-8 inches of snow blanketed the region. Even the most efficient general aviation airports took a day or two to clean up and resume limited service levels. Our pictorial below shows the crew at Farmington, MO Regional Airport cleaning up this week following the snow storm, making sure the pad was clear for the medical services helicopter.
