AVIATION STAKEHOLDERS INVITED TO AIR ISSUES ON FUTURE OPERATIONS OF WESTCHESTER COUNTY AIRPORT

WPCNR WESTCHESTER WINGS. From the Westchester Aviation Association. July 15, 2013:
The Westchester Aviation Association is informing all aviation pilots, aircraft owners and members to attend a public hearing on the future development of the Westchester County Airport at the Westchester County Center Wednesday, from 7 to 9 P.M.
According to Donna Greene, of the Westchester County Department of Communications the hearing is the beginning of the process for developing a new master plan for the county airport. She said it is a first step in the process of addressing current and future Westchester aviation operations to bring airport issues into the 21st Century, since the last master plan was created in 1987, 26 years ago.
The Westchester Aviation Association statement to its members says:
If continued access to Westchester County Airport (HPN) is important to you as either a General Aviation or Business Aircraft user, then your attendance at the Westchester County Airport Master Plan hearing on July 17th. is critical.
This may be your only chance to affect the outcome of the HPN Master Plan and more importantly, the survival of a viable Runway 11/29.
Please attend this meeting and give your opinion. Your participation will make a difference and we appreciate any help and support.
If you have any additional question please contact John Johnston, WAA President at: 917 817-392, or Milt Hobbs WAA Vice President at: 914 289-4861.
