What's Was In This Issue?
Local and National airshows that require a control towers for safety; have been popular with pilots and the general public and they add economic income to the local economy.

The Federal Aviation Administration known as the FAA has always supplied volunteer air traffic controllers at these events. However, with budget cuts hitting hard last year the FAA said that it would have to start charging for air traffic control services at all airshows. Our Father's Day fly-In included.

Should
flying a drone require a pilots license?
Drones have been flying for years by the military and hobbyists. However, in recent years, the development of drones for commercial use has exploded. They are now poised to be used from everything from crop surveys to law enforcement, fighting fires and thousands of commercial jobs from delivering packages, selling real estate and aerial photography.

A new challenge now faces the FAA. Should they mandate that a drone pilot who charges for his or her services hold a commercial pilot's license?

Ocean Ridge Airport needs
your help
Ocean Ridge Airport is located a mile from the Pacific Ocean, and is 940 feet above sea level. An old postcard declares that is sits "above the fog, beyond the smog".

The CA Department of Transportation informed the airport owners that needed repairs are needed to fingerpost AA standards. An airport association had been formed with the goal of raising the necessary resources. If the needed funds are not raised, this historic airport could be closed.
