Welcome to the May Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!

It’s common knowledge in our industry that the FAA is planning to close about 150 air traffic control towers due to budget cuts. The potential impact this may have on our aviation safety environment is massive.

Because our industry is undergoing such drastic changes, it is our responsibility as FBOs and pilots to do what we can to minimize the safety risks that these tower closings will pose.

This issue of the BAC Bulletin focuses on the tower closings, as a review of takeoff and landing safety. We also share some timely AOPA Foundation safety resources for nontowered airports provided by AOPA President, Bruce Landsberg.

Finally, to keep up to date on what’s going on with all of the recent issues, make sure you "like" our Facebook page and help your colleagues stay in the know by sharing our posts with your friends.

Safe flying!
