Recent Events: Visits & Tours (Alliance Tower + AFSS)

On Saturday, March 31, 2012 we visited the aviation facilities around Alliance Airport including the Alliance Control Tower and the FAA/Lockheed-Martin Automated Flight Service Station.

Dale Walker, Lead Operations Supervisor a the AFSS gave us an outstanding presentation of Flight service history and current capabilities as well as numerous tips on how to best use these capabilities to improve our flight experience. More specifically, he spoke about weather information, pilot flight profiles, communications and flight planning procedures that can make our flights safer and more enjoyable.

Damian Gomez, Front Line Manager, was our host at the Alliance Tower. Damian gave us a tour around the tower cab and described all of the equipment, systems, and capabilities available to facilitate control of aircraft taking off, landing, and moving on the ground. Outstanding experience. These guys are great!
