FAA Releases Position Paper on ‘Safety Concerns of Exhaust Plumes’
Written by Editor   
Tuesday, 22 July 2014 16:45

CPA-logo-smallOver the past several years, the California Pilots Association has been a force in driving the FAA to recognize the dangers to aviation associated with power plant plumes, both the high speed vertical velocities and the unknown chemical makeup.

This effort by the California Pilots Association (CalPilot's) is a result of the Power Plant Industry quietly trying to build too closely to existing airports within California without appropriate concern for aviation safety (search Power Plants on this web site for more information).

Ocean Ridge Airport Update
Written by Ocean Ridge Airport Association (ORAA)   
Thursday, 17 July 2014 07:42

Ocean Ridge SectionalHello supporters of Ocean Ridge Airport,

I want to personally thank you for making our fundraising effort a success. While we didn't reach our target, we did make a lot of progress.

And as luck would have it, we were able secure a slurry contract for a much lower price than we had planned on. We had planned for the worst case scenario of having to pay for full mobilization of a contractor--and in Gualala that would have been staggering. But we were able to piggy back with a contractor doing work nearby so we didn't have to pay for the whole mobilization. We saved ourselves a bundle!
