Attention Iowa Members: Get Involved in Your State’s Aviation Plans
October 28, 2010 — EAA is encouraging its Iowa members to attend one of four upcoming public meetings on the Iowa Aviation System Plan to help determine the state’s aviation direction over the next two decades (2010-2030). The meetings will review Iowa’s FAA-mandated, 20-year comprehensive plan outlining the current state and specific goals of the state’s airports.
EAA’s review of the current plan revealed two significant areas of concern: the need to add ethanol-free autofuel to the fuel list benchmark for enhanced service, general service, and basic service II airports to accommodate more than 400 autofuel supplemental type certificates for GA aircraft in Iowa; and addressing the estimated 35-percent shortfall of airports that do not have the required available hangar space.
Let your voice heard at one of the following public meetings:
- Thursday, November 4, 2010 - Spencer Municipal Airport - 6:30 p.m.
- Monday, November 8, 2010 - Mason City Municipal Airport - 6:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - Ankeny Regional Airport - 7 p.m.
- Wednesday, November 10, 2010 - Iowa City Municipal Airport - 6:30 p.m.
