Editor's note: The meeting agenda for this event no longer includes the helicopter routes. Also, the original story incorrectly stated the topic of the meeting.
California's Torrance Municipal Airport seeks to modify a West Pacific Coast Highway helicopter route that would reduce noise in the surrounding communities, while ensuring safe, efficient operations for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft operating in the airport's Class D airspace. Torrance Municipal Airport serves mainly general aviation aircraft and helicopters, and is home to Robinson Helicopters.
The Torrance Airport Association will host a meeting about the modified helicopter route on Wednesday, July 10, at 7 p.m., at the Torrance Airport General Aviation Center, 3301 Airport Drive in Torrance, Calif. More information is available on the TOA website.
Dinners at Waypoint Café at California's Camarillo Airport will have an outside dining option to watch airplanes and helicopters take off and land, and learn more about general aviation in the process.
When you set out on a mission to learn about your airplane, it’s amazing how many people step in to help.
The management team running Chelton Flight Systems and S-Tec Corp. in Mineral Wells, Texas, for parent Cobham Avionics saw an opportunity and bought in.
