Temporary Relocation Plans
The bad news. I received word from the airport (KOXB)that there will be a T-Hangar taxiway rehab project starting in September running through October. This project will require excavating 18-24 inches for a new road box to include new under drain, stone base and two 4" lifts of hot mix. This all means that 08Romeo will be out on the ramp for two months, yuck, in the salt air environment.
The good news, we'll have a beautiful taxiway with excellent drainage and new striping.
I started to make calls, sent text messages and emails to my flying friends looking for a temporary home for 08Romeo. I have a few irons in the fire.
At the other end of the networking spectrum is an opportunity to work close to home. I wanted to take all of 2017 off but the chance to work at the local airport has my gears turning. The info; two month project, eight miles from home, and work that's right in my wheel house. Yes, today I updated my resume and made a few calls for references. I'll make a call to a man that offered me a job at this very company back in 2013, maybe he'll find a place for me doing airport work. More on this story to follow in the coming months.
