Municipal Airport Operations Can't Post

Anyone out there have anything that resembles a guide for municipal airports with skydiving operations? I'm looking to explain to an airport manager and current airport residents how and why skydiving ops can be successfully and safely integrated into current operations.

For the record - yes, I've already contacted USPA and other DZ that are currently doing this. I'm just looking to cast a wider net to capture any additional information that someone may be willing to pass along.

Jen Sharp

has some experience in this area she might be able to help???

(not 100 percent sure, but 99.9 percent shure...)

http://www.skydivekansas.com/general/homepage.shtml

specifically she used to have a SOP standard operating procedures pdf that I used to give out to prospective individuals that knew nothing about operations, after reading Jens handiwork they saw all of the regulations and such and generally walked away with a much more favorable if not downright helpful attitude than before.

Stuff like this????

Let me know if the pdf I attached worked....

That's quite an impressive document. It's obvious that quite a bit of work has gone into this. Thanks for passing it along.

and a letter I wrote some years ago in support of dz ops at the airport, talking about the real-time interactions that occur.

Personally as you go along I would copy everything you see of value, I've noticed more than once this kind of blog and forum information gets deleted, mostly when you need it most.

Laurie Greer, who also is in New Hampshire, a wonderful person, who puts in 80 hours per week at skyventure Nashua has also had some experience with this issue as well, if she has the time you might want to consider speaking with her???


If you take the time you can see how one person with an agenda who views a federally funded airport as his private club to do with as he see's fit and the influence he went to too derail Tom's plans. This certainly wasn't fair or just. But it does illustrate how some private fields are controlled by the pig headed minded few that want to keep their private fields private. Aircraft traffic at Laconia is at an all time low, frequently there is no activity during the week and just a few takeoffs and landings that are widely separated in time on the busy weekends. But never the less, one individual wanted to keep it his private domain for his own sense of control over others...he was and continues to be sucksessful... to the detriment of everyone else there....

Compare this shitheads attitude and lies with places like DeLand, Elsanore, Perris, Eloy,.. and the other hundred or so very busy airports that not only have skydiving opeerations and hundreds of daily flights but other airport mixed use functions as well....

This is a continuing fight for access folks, and it is going to be a fight for a long time!!!!
