Greetings MAA members,

Wow, this year is going by fast. Here we are into the “dog days” of summer, and fall is rapidly approaching. With that being said, it might be a good time to start thinking about winterizing your airport. The cold weather will arrive before we know it, and we should prepare early.

Please remember that several airports around the state are holding aviation events in the coming weeks, and I encourage us to get out and visit any one or all of these events if possible.  Our airport recently completed our 2019 FAR Part 139 inspection, and we are continuing to address problem areas and update training to make ourselves better. I thank all of our friends to whom I have reached out in the past for advice and counsel, and I do hope that we continue that spirit of cooperation within our ranks.

Planning is getting underway for the 2020 MAA Conference, so be on the lookout for information in the coming months. We hope to see everyone there, and we encourage you to bring a friend or two when you come. Blue skies and clear runways!!
