NEWS FROM THE RAMP

Our first Saturday of the month ‘Hangar Talk’ & ‘Meet with the Manager’ came back IN PERSON for the first time since March!!!  It’s so great to see folks enjoying themselves on Nancy’s terrace again.  Here are some of the highlights:
Our new, state supplied rotating beacon (Thank You, Kate Hogan & MassDOT-AD) is now operating with our old baffles installed, which protect our neighbors from unwanted light.  Thank you to the many EAA Chapter 196 members who brought these modifications ‘on line’. 

Our next project is installing our 4 solar powered obstruction lights on the RNWY 3 Approach (again, Thank You, Kate Hogan & MassDOT).  Again, Chapter 196 members have stepped forward to assist with this fun, but very important safety project.With COVID making ground school impractical, Aptis Aviation has opted to give up their classroom space, which has now been subdivided in two.  The new (old) space is being occupied by Vickie Evarts and her team from William Raveis Real Estate.  Stop by and welcome them to our unique community.
Alakai has now flown their hydrogen fuel cell powered eVTOL, Alakai, in development here, in excess of 30 minutes!  Way to go team!!!

Welcome to Bill Oakland, a Piper 180 owner based here, who is now helping out in OPS.  Thank you Bill for your cheerful demeanor and your eye on safety.

WE’RE HIRING!

We’re always looking for qualified part-time help in our operations office, aka, ‘OPS’.  As an ‘Airport Concierge’, you’ll be an ambassador for the air field, Stow and Massachusetts.  You’ll greet pilots via radio, telephone and in person to assist them with parking, buying fuel, food, ground transportation, and lodging. 

This is a great job for a multi-tasker who has a knack for customer service, a strong attention to detail, works well independently, and who would like to spend their days speaking ‘aviation’ with our visitors!   While primarily a customer service position, you will also be involved in administrative and other tasks to support our airport manager and the air field.  This is a great job for a pilot who is retired or someone currently undergoing flight training who wants to be immersed in a great aviation community!  Please send a letter of interest to ellen@minutemanairfield.com

Turtles Fly Too’s mission is to facilitate stranded turtle rescue and relocation efforts made possible through the generosity of “first responder” volunteer pilots/aircraft owners.
Turtles Fly Too partners with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to educate folks about the many ways volunteer pilots/aircraft owners benefit our society, including rescue of stranded, endangered sea turtles.
