AOPA is supporting the Aviation Association of New Hampshire (AANH) in an effort to save five of the state's 10 privately owned public-use airports from being sold, and possibly closed, within the next two years. The New Hampshire Division of Aeronautics issued a report naming the five airports that are expected to go up for sale and outlining a series of steps that must be taken to preserve them. AANH is sponsoring an awareness meeting at 7 p.m., June 15, at Concord Municipal Airport, Concord Aviation Services. Jack Ferns, director of aeronautics for the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, will present the division's report during the meeting. AOPA encourages all members to attend and show their support for protecting the general aviation airports in the state.
