New control tower precedes airspace change at Easton

There's a new control tower at Maryland's Easton/Newnam Field (ESN). But because of some FAA paperwork issues, the Class D airspace doesn't officially exist yet. The tower is supposed to open soon, but the Class D airspace won't become effective and charted until Feb. 14. Pilots are cautioned that in the meantime they will still need clearances for landings and takeoffs. Check airport notams before you fly.
