Castle Airport Name Change?

Editorial by Ace Bowman
Castle Airport Pilot Representative

The meeting at Castle this morning was productive, although the presence of a County Supervisor (any) would have been perhaps more helpful. The idea of renaming Castle Airport was discussed at length, and in detail. This was a proposal put forth by marketing professionals who felt that a name change with something about “Central California” or “Central California-Yosemite” as the title would better identify the location of the airport. Obviously, little thought was given to the idea prior to the meeting today.
