FROM THE MANAGER

One of the things that truly separates KLVJ from most other airports I have encountered are the people, and the way we all strive to work together. We have a community like no other! Day or night, rain or shine, we can depend on each other to help maintain safe flying, remedy problems, and promote a tremendously positive aviation atmosphere!

I want to share with everyone an upcoming opportunity provided by our friends at Coastal Skies Flying Club and Total Aircraft Services. On April 7 they will be hosting an FAA basic medical clinic from 12pm-6pm at the Total Aircraft Services Hangar. More details are shared in the article below. 

I encourage everyone to take advantage of this great chance to complete your medical requirements and spend a day visiting with other pilots and instructors at KLVJ. These types of events are key in maintaining a safe and effective environment!

There are countless chances to learn new skills, reach another milestone, or help someone else discover and unlock their potential in aviation. I'd like to thank each member of our community for always going above and beyond to look out for each other and provide opportunities for success!

Safe flying, 

Adam Arceneaux
Airport Manager
