Before jumping into an update on airfield signage, I'll start with a quick introduction. I would like to think that by now I have either met with or spoken to all of our valued airport tenants. I have been with Texas Aviation Partners for the last 6 years and I spend the majority of my time working on all things accounting, airport operations, and safety. I work with our tenants to make sure that their needs are met, oversee construction/repairs of our airport projects, and work to make sure our safety is our number one priority for all operations.
Pilots who frequent our airport know that many of our runway and taxiway signs are in need of replacement since many have faded from years in the sun. We ordered the panels in October and just received the last shipment. The airfield electrician will be here after Christmas to install them and we hope to have everything in place before the New Year. The electrician will also be checking each sign to make sure it is functioning properly.
New airfield panels can have a huge impact on the look of the airfield as well as safety since they make it easier for pilots to navigate the intersecting runways and taxiways. When we replaced all the signs on Runway 13/31 last year as part of the reconstruction project, I think I was more excited than anyone to see the improvement!
We have also been working on making some much needed repairs to our City-owned T-Hangars. Over the last several weeks, we have had a technician inspecting and repairing the electrical outlets, overhead lighting, and making repairs to the doors and tracks so that the door glides much smoother and opens easier. If any of our tenants find anything we may have overlooked, please don't hesitate to call. As you know, regular maintenance is a never-ending cycle but we're excited to see progress being made.
On behalf of everyone at Texas Aviation Partners, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Director of Operations and Administration
