Brief Description:

Aurora Tower Briefing at This Month's Second Saturday!

Please join us at this month's Second Saturday Seminar as we welcome Aurora Tower Chief Raul Suarez to our Willamette Aviation stage. Chief Suarez is a veteran air traffic controller who relocated from California in 2015 to oversee the opening of the tower at KUAO. Over the past 30 months, the tower has required a shift in how pilots operate at our regional airport — it also means that controllers and pilots should meet face-to-face whenever possible, in order to highlight operational issues and clarify expectations. This month, we'll discuss Aurora's Class D airspace and how the airport community can continue working on behalf of safe airport operations. Please bring your questions to this month's event!
