Bring EXTRA Aircraft to Prescott

by FlyPrescott.com

As the politicians continue their partisan rhetoric about bringing in EXTRA AIRCRAFT to Prescott, here's our opinion:


Prescott is not only a tourism destination and retirement community, it's an incredible aviation and aerospace community. Prescott would be a perfect fit for Extra and vice versa. Extra would bring 100+ jobs paying $30,000 and up.

All the major principals at the airport such as Embry Riddle, Legend Aviation, Guidance Aviation and NorthAire would benefit. Extra would benefit as it would have a pool of graduates from these organizations to hire from.

We've heard some compare this to the Trader Joe's deal. That's simply not logical. Creating an aerospace center here in Prescott is a no brainer as Prescott is already a leader in flight training and aeronautical engineering. There would be no better place for an aircraft manufacturer to build it's product and brand it than amongst the future leaders of aviation.

It's time to start investing in something that's already built and established -The Prescott Airport and Air Park. Moreover, a well developed aerospace park / center would attract even MORE students to the Prescott Airport. More students, more visiting families, increased tourism, increased visibility for tourism, etc..

Prescott has, without a doubt, one of the most unique airports in the country. It's one of the busiest because of flight training. Our region is home to Lockheed Martin Flight Service. Prescott is the gateway to Sedona and the Grand Canyon and the flying weather is second to none in the country. It's time we invest in aerospace here in Prescott for all the right reasons.

Clear prop!

Mass Casualty Drill At Prescott Airport (PRC)

On Tuesday, August 16th, 2011 the Prescott Fire Department will be hosting a Regional Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) exercise at Ernest A Love Field in Prescott, Arizona. The exercise is expected to include over 25 regional agencies and 130 participants. Participating agencies include but are not limited to:

Prescott Airport Department
Prescott Fire Department
Prescott Police Department
Prescott Regional Communication Center
Central Yavapai Fire District
Chino Valley Fire District
Mayer Fire District
Groom Creek Fire District
Yavapai County Emergency Services
Life Line Ambulance
Native Air Ambulance
Department of Public Safety
Yavapai College
Yavapai Regional Medical Center
Prescott Unified School District
Civil Air Patrol
Trauma Intervention Program
Federal Aviation Administration


The purpose of the exercise is to coordinate a regional mass casualty incident response to minimize loss of life and human suffering. A mass casualty incident is an event with critical injuries or deaths exceeding the normal response capability of an emergency medical services organization. A bus accident, large weather related event, hazardous materials release, or acts of terrorism are examples of emergencies where a mass casualty incident might occur.

Funded by the Department of Homeland Security, the inter-agency exercise will provide an opportunity for regional agency participation in responding to a simulated mass casualty incident at a unique facility, the Prescott Airport . Additionally, this exercise will allow the Prescott Airport and its associated functions to test, evaluate the viability, and make improvements to the Airport Emergency Plan in accordance with federal requirements.


The inter-agency exercise will consist of a simulated aircraft emergency involving two aircraft with live fire and up to 25 patients who will need to be triaged and treated by responding agencies. The simulated incident is designed to assist regional providers in the use of our multi-agency partnerships, response of area resources, provide strategies in resource management, fire suppression techniques, emergency transportation, airport emergency operation techniques, hospital mass-casualty capabilities, and participating agency safety practices.

Sincerely,

*Our Thanks to Legend Aviation & Guidance Aviation for their facility and sponsoring of this event.
Pilot airspace deviations continue to be a major risk in the national airspace system. To reduce the chance that you might be involved in an airspace deviation incident, you are highly encouraged to take an on-line learning center course on http://www.faasafety.gov/ . Or search the learning library for associated guidance on airspace incursions. Remember, safe and prudent airmen have superior situational awareness and have a plan to keep it that way. Thanks! A message from your local FAASTeam.
