Airport Caretaker Report: Susie Rawe provided the Monthly Managers Report. This report was reviewed by the committee. Susie reported that Jet A fuel sales have increased over the last month. Possibly due to helicopter ag operations locally. The Jet fuel “Prist” injector gaskets have deteriorated and need replaced. Repairs are scheduled. A new sight glass fuel level indicator is additionally needed.
On September 19th, the military will be conducting a sight evaluation for operational practices later in the year or early 2018. We may see increased helicopter operations for a short time period.
Financial report: Reviewed. On schedule with our budgeted calendar year.
- Airport master plan: The project is on schedule. RFQs are out for the engineering and environmental studies to be conducted. A series of meetings between various agencies will be held over the next year to ensure the desired master plan contains essential development projects. First meeting scheduled for September 20, 2017
- Airport Fly-In: Hermiston Airport will be having a Watermelon fly-in on Saturday September 2016 starting around 9:00 am. Announcements have been released to various clubs and individuals involved. A thank you in advance to Walkers Melons for the large melon donation.
