Past Squawks

2019

January SASA ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING -New members were present and many current members attended.  The meeting went well and there were resolutions for some of the Port Hangars that may be considered, but only temporarily.  Some pilots are finding shared hangar opportunities to use while waiting for new hangar construction to be completed, so ask around.  Several hanger proposals are in the works for construction and the Port will review these soon.  The possibility of wood beam construction was asked by attending participants, and Sarah Young was open to possible proposals, but this type of construction is not in the current Master Plan.  My guess is that this type of building may be slotted for Taxiway C, if allowed.  The dinner was quite tasty, some from Kelly’s BBQ and some from Becky Goodell, so a big thank you to her for a supreme presentation.  Elections were held with new board members elected and past board members continuing to serve SASA.  NOTE: SASA will be the primary communication outlet for communication with the Port administration for the solution of replacement hangars.
