Willenborg Aeronautics DA 21JAN10
Posted by Christopher J. Willenborg
MassDOT Aeronautics Division Administrator

The MassDOT Aeronautics Division this month partnered with the Massachusetts Airport Management Association (MAMA) for their first quarterly general membership meeting, hosted at Worcester Regional Airport.  MAMA is one of the largest aviation stakeholders group in the Commonwealth with over 120 members.  The MAMA quarterly meetings are an excellent opportunity for MassDOT to reach out to the aviation stakeholders across the Commonwealth.

 
Aeronautics Worcester Meeting 1 21JAN10 I was pleased to speak to the group about MassDOT and the Aeronautics Division since our official beginning on November 1, 2009.  I provided an update on the Statewide Airport System Plan Update, the Massachusetts LPV Approach System Project, Five Year Airport Capital Improvement Program, 2010 Real World Design Challenge, 2010 Statewide Economic Impact Study, and outreach efforts to other state agencies.

We also heard from David Dinneen, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Airport Management Association, and LaVerne Reid, Manager of the New Region FAA Airports Office, with updates about their organizations. 

I wish to sincerely thank MAMA for the strong partnership in addressing general aviation issues throughout the Commonwealth and Andrew Davis, Airport Director of Worcester Regional Airport, for graciously hosting the event in the terminal building.  We look forward to future collaboration.

I invite everyone to visit our website for information about general aviation airports, airshows, aircraft registration, and much more.
