Schedulers and Dispatchers Convention
Dana and Joel spent last week in San Antoni, TX, at the 2019 Schedulers and Dispatchers Convention promoting the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport (KLXT).

A special thanks to the attendees who came by the booth to learn more about the airport (KLXT) and the services we offer. We hope to see you again at the 2020 convention.
Hayley Guth
Line Service
What are your day-to-day job duties at the airport?
I arrive at the airport around 6 a.m. and inspect the runways, taxiways and perform other miscellaneous airport procedures. I tow and fuel aircraft and on snowy days I help with snow removal. I think it's pretty awesome. When needed, I also answer phones and make reservations (car rentals, etc.). My less glamorous duties involve cleaning.
Why did you decide to work at the Lee's Summit Municipal Airport?

I had friends who worked here and I thought it would be fun to be a "line guy”. I started part-time and continued to work another job until a full-time spot opened up. The rest is history!
What do you like most about your job?
There are many things I like about my job:
  • I really enjoy towing aircraft.
  • Any chance I get to be creative.
  • Enjoy interacting with customers.
  • I love being outdoors (when it’s not -5 degrees out).
Do you have a pilot's license? If not, do you plan to get one?
I was working on a license awhile back but decided It can be an expensive hobby. I also weighed how much I would really use it. I might pursue it after I win the Powerball.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy doing anything outdoors during my free time. Some of these activities include skateboarding, long boarding and mountain boarding.
