     With WAMA’s Annual Conference scheduled for the first of June, many are wondering if the conference will go on as scheduled. The WAMA Board has met and discussed the options of holding the meeting as scheduled, cancelling, or postponing until a later date in the fall.  The Conference Committee is working with the hotel to find alternate dates that don’t conflict with other scheduled conferences typically attended by airport personnel and contractors. 

    The committee plans to meet the first week of April to discuss the options and make a final decision.  With the uncertainty of the spread of COVID-19 and future restrictions on travel and gatherings, WAMA appreciates your patience and understanding as we wade through these difficult times.  Our goal is to keep everyone and the ones with whom they come in contact healthy and safe.

    Warren Hendrickson has compiled an informal list of Washington State/PNW Airport Restaurant List (updated 2019) which now includes additional pages for nearby Oregon airports (both east and west of the Cascades) and nearby Idaho airports. This list is not complete and we ask that if you have suggestions or recommendations for restaurants at or serving your airport, please feel free to provide Warren with your additional information.  You may send your suggestions/ recommendations to Warren Hendrickson, at: wbhendrickson@comcast.net .  He will continue to update the list. The list is primarily intended for use by pilots as they fly around the area. Perhaps providing everyone with an additional reason to visit your airport!

    The Washington State Department of Transportation Aviation Division initiated an update to the Washington Aviation Economic Impact Study (AEIS) starting in October.

    This study, last updated in 2012, provides critical information on the value of our state's aviation system.  It will calculate and document the economic contributions airports make to local communities, regions, and the state.  Analyses will identify off-airport businesses and industries who use and depend on the airports.  It is widely used throughout the state to communicate aviation's benefits for citizens of Washington state.

    Each public-use airport in the state will receive the results to share with their stakeholders about the airport's value and contributions to the community.

    The consultant team consists of Kimley-Horn, Economic Development Research (EDR) Group, WSP USA, and PRR.  All have reached out to airports to request information to facilitate the economic impact analyses.

    The work involved to complete the study finalizes in February 2020.  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funded this study with a grant, with some supporting funds from WSDOT.
