California Airports

New Wings for McClellan-Palomar Airport

If you have ever flown in or out of Carlsbad’s McClellan-Palomar Airport, you know it is quite a view from the sky. The glimmering Pacific, rolling hills, lagoons and The Flower Fields all provide aerial eye candy. And now, on its 50th anniversary with a new, state-of the art, ecologically minded terminal and airport-wide revisions complete, the view from the ground is just as spectacular.

Who Works for Who?

Can you feel it? There seems to be change in the air. Maybe it is more than just a feeling.

Change isn’t always easy, and as a result many don’t like it. I tend to find change to be a good thing, especially in this case given what the citizens of our country have had to endure due to criminal mismanagement and outright greed over the past few years.

TSA’s SD – 1542-04-08F Misguided

Will new security rules leave private planes with clipped wings?
Saturday, May 23, 2009 – A pending security directive affecting the people who fly private planes is itself so secret that the people who stand to be most affected have never even seen it. A Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman said in a statement that some of the fears about the directive, called SD 8F, which goes into effect June 1, have been overblown. The agency “is committed to working with its industry partners to ensure that requirements provide increased security without unduly impacting the flow of commerce,” said Carrie Harmon, TSA Regional Public Affairs manager.
