A lot of hoopla was generated to welcome the “new” service at ACV yesterday (jet vs prop, bigger planes) but the Country’s Aviation Advisory Committee couldn’t come up with a quorum for its November 24th meeting. A number of important items were listed on the agenda for that day, including “Nominations and elections of HCAAC Board Members” and the annual presentation /status report to the Supervisors. An additional meeting of the HCAAC has been scheduled for Dec 15, apparently to deal with that. It was mentioned during the non-meeting that the airport will be issuing a press release around Christmas to address drone registration and assistance available from ACV and from the FAA.
Meanwhile the folks in Redding have added a new daily flight to SFO, the story HERE.
Redding now has three flights daily to SFO, just like we do. It is clear that community support is very, very important in luring air service to Humboldt.
