Presidents Corner March 2007:

 

Thanks again to Glenn Smith for contributing the use of his hangar for the February meeting and arranging for the

speakers from the Boulder City fire department.  The main discussion centered around emergency communications,

and the challenges presented at an uncontrolled airport.  The Fire Department is currently working with 61B airport

management to develop a complete emergency response plan (ERP).  Lots of ideas were discussed, but if we want

our input into the final form of the ERP, it appears we should act soon and in concert with airport management. 

If anyone is interested in taking up this topic, please contact Glenn, or any one of the board members so we can

coordinate our input.

 

Following Buck’s example, several chapter members made contributions to Discover Aviation (Jean Airport April 21)

to help with the advertising and operations budget.  Money is tight, but the Discover Aviation team is working hard

to make this a success to build on.  If you can provide any support, please contact Mike Perger or David Lerner directly. 

 

Be looking in the mail for your chapter dues notice, and by separate mailing, a ballot on altering the by-laws to reduce

the liability insurance requirement from two million to one million dollars.  If we don’t make this change, we will be forced

to purchase two million of insurance at more than double the cost for one million. 

 

Finally, Dave Edwards will be at our next meeting (March 14: HND) to talk about the status of first flights at VGT.  

We need to learn all we can from this experience to better prepare for any similar challenges at other area airports. 

They may come sooner that we would like to think.
