LETTER TO THE EDITOR from ROBERT HOM, Eagle River, Wis.
I guess I am a little sensitive these days reading about airports in national publications; whether they have an obvious anti-GA airport slant as USA Today, or in the pro-airport General Aviation News. But, I do feel a couple of comments are warranted with respect to the article “Is your airport on the endangered list?”
My discontent comes from the insinuation in two areas of the article that Land Use Studies and Proposed Land Use or Zoning Changes are singular tools used to close airports. Reporter Meg Godlewski implies in the article that airport users should be opposed to land use studies in general. I suggest quite the opposite.
Airport managers and their sponsors should be actively encouraged to commission land use studies.
