Managing an airport in Wisconsin is no small task. Often forced to play the role of snow plow driver, accountant, airport planner, and aviation advocate – all in the same day – the men and women responsible for managing the state’s airports are some of the hardest working people you will find. That’s why every fall the Wisconsin Bureau of Aeronautics (BOA) holds a two-day Airport Operations & Land Use Seminar for the people responsible for managing our state’s airports. The seminar provides airport managers with the information and tools they need to take on the day’s most relevant and timely challenges. This year, seminar topics include: airport emergency plans and accident investigation, preventing airspace hazards, how to take advantage of the surplus equipment program, developing a wildlife hazard management plan, and many more.
In addition, the seminar provides a platform for interacting with FAA officials, BOA staff, airport consultants, and other airport managers. There’s no better place to gain valuable information about managing Wisconsin airports.
We invite all airport managers, airport owners, airport committee members, city administrators, and anyone else who has a hand in managing an airport to attend.
The 2013 Airport Operations & Land Use Seminar will take place Wednesday, September 25 and Thursday, September 26 at Hotel Mead in Wisconsin Rapids. For more information about the seminar, registration, or accommodations visit www.dot.wisconsin.gov/news/events/air/operations-seminar.htm. If you have any questions call (608) 267-2142 or email email@example.com. Hope to see you there!
