Havasu 17 Aftermath

Brad Ransom
 


Steve Johnston, The Havasu Airport manager called me today.  A very pleasant and professional conversation ensued regarding Saturdays operations.  He apologized twice (I replied unnecessary). We where both in total agreement in respect to operations and regulations of a non-towered HII airport. Very refreshing to hear coming from City Government personnel. 

He confirmed the obvious personalities and ensuing motives involved with the current City Manager and Havasu Air FBO.  Sounds like the City management is going through a political change process of questionable motivations...Small town politics.  
 
 Regarding the Texan(Harvard) II training Squadron was based out of Moose Jaw. The squadron experienced a stand down January 27th due to an incident in Canada. Otherwise they would be finished with training before our scheduled start of Friday,  Feb. 3rd. 

Anyway, other than the drama and saturated airspace, I believe, it was a very good experience and practice for all involved. 
I'm very proud of the pilot skill displayed at the event.  Simply OUTSTANDING! 

Also heard some positive responses coming from Hanger 24 after seeing the big 24 ship.....you got that!?  Good!  

Any suggestions, operational comments, (volunteer to become "Guido the enforcer"), all welcome.

Blue Skies!

Dulette got a nice picture of our 24 ship over the airport. I think it would be a nice gesture to send Desert Skies and Hangar 24 a copy of this. Maybe the Canadians as well....LOL
