FROM THE MANAGER
I have spoken with airport officials and they advised they are interviewing two more candidates this week for the position of Airport Manager. We will continue to try to keep you up to date as things develop.
Winter is here and the temperatures are dropping. Don't forget to do any housekeeping or winterizing with your aircraft, such as removing items from the passenger or luggage compartments that may freeze and rupture.
The Team at GTU Jet wants you to know that it has been our honor and pleasure to serve you and to thank you for trusting us with your aircraft. We pride ourselves on providing the highest professional service possible.
Last, but certainly not least, we hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

FAA RUNWAY SAFETY MEETING AT KGTU
Letter from ATCT Manager
Runway incursions remain a serious concern nationally. One important component of our ongoing efforts to improve surface safety at Georgetown Airport involves conducting a Runway Safety Action Team (RSAT) meeting at least once each year. In conjunction with the airport, we will be conducting a local RSAT meeting on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 10:00 am in the Airport Terminal.
The purpose of this RSAT meeting is to unite those individuals and organizations that are actively involved in air traffic operations and movement of aircraft, vehicles and equipment on the Airport Operations Area (AOA). We look for participation from all major airport interests including tenants, fixed base operators, flight schools, airport operations and maintenance personnel. Participants are asked to help develop recommendations and solutions to enhance surface safety. Those recommendations serve as the foundation for a site-specific Runway Safety Action Plan.
You are cordially invited to join us and your participation and input is welcomed.
If you have questions or need more information, please let me know. I can be reached at 512-868-3580.
