Merry (belated) Christmas and Happy (early) New Year!

We're almost there, guys. 2020 is nearly done and I know I'm not alone in welcoming a fresh start.

Thank you to all who attended our last Airport Advisory Board meeting of the year. For those who were unable to join, you can find a summary below.

We also hosted the Air Traffic Control Tower's annual Runway Safety Action Team (RSAT) meeting this month. Since this year's meeting was held via Zoom, we had a record turnout of 37 people (compared to seven in 2019).

A big topic of conversation was the increased traffic and the need to educate flight instructors on best practices to pass along to their students. We hope to schedule a meeting in the first quarter of 2021 and anyone who utilizes the airport will be encouraged to attend. Be on the lookout for more information soon.

After the meeting, Joe Enzminger, our local Commemorative Air Force Wing Leader, had the wonderful idea of creating a private Facebook page with a focus on safety for pilots who utilize the airport. If you are based at HYI or frequently use the airport, please feel free to join us!

Please have a safe and joyous New Year's Eve and we'll see you in 2021!

Fly Safe,
Cassidy Berenato
Director of Marketing and Business Development
