One important compo- nent of our ongoing efforts to improve surface safety at Arlington involves conducting a Runway Safety Action Team (RSAT) meeting at least once each year. In conjunction with airport management, we will be conducting a local RSAT meeting on Thursday, June 15, 2017. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm in the Airport Terminal Building. The purpose of this RSAT meeting is to unite those individuals and organizations that are actively involved in air traffic operations and movement of aircraft, vehicles and equipment in the Airport Operations Area (AOA). We look for participation from all major airport interests including tenants, fixed base opera- tors, airport operations and maintenance personnel. Participants are asked to help develop recommendations and solutions to enhance surface safety. Those recommendations serve as the foundation for a site-specific Runway Safety Action Plan. You are cordially invited to join us. If you have questions or need more information, please let me know. I can be reached at (817) 459-5532.” EAA Chapter 34 IMC Kick-off Meeting June 22, 2017 The EAA invites you to attend their IMC Club kick-off meeting June 22, 2017.
