FROM THE MANAGER
The cold weather and holiday season have arrived. This is my favorite time of the year. As the weather becomes more challenging and the holiday travel season really takes off, we wanted to ensure everyone is putting safety first and being the best pilot they can be. Use your checklists, ask fellow pilots and staff members for assistance, lend a hand to anyone that may need it. We KLVJ-ers have always stuck together and that is one of my favorite things about our airport.
Now that we have finished the TxDOT improvement projects, we are turning our focus to safety related events and learning opportunities. We have an excellent seminar approaching this weekend and we hope to see you all there.
The FAA Safety Team (FAAST) and Veracity Aviation are hosting a wonderful seminar open to anyone that actively uses the Pearland Regional airport for commercial or recreational use.
The meeting will go over topics such as general airport safety, helicopter operations and interactions between operators. We also aim to provide a platform for getting to know one another better and how we can make Pearland Regional Airport an ideal environment for aviation.
The meeting will be held Saturday November 17 at 10am at the Veracity Aviation hangar and will have representatives from Pearland Regional, Veracity Aviation, the FAAHouston FSDO and FAASTeam.
Come join your fellow aviators and sharpen your skills! Burgers, hot dogs, and drinks will be provided after the seminar. We hope to see you all there!
Have a safe and Happy Holiday Season!

PILOTS FOR PATIENTS
The mission of Pilots for Patients is to provide free air transportation to those patients needing diagnosis and treatments at medical facilities not available to them locally. Their goal is to eliminate the burden of travel allowing the patient to concentrate on getting well. We have several pilots based here at KLVJ that generously donate their time and aircraft to help make a difference in the lives of others. This is a wonderful program and we are thrilled to support their efforts!
Pilots for Patients is expanding their membership to facilitate the growing list of missions. They need volunteer pilots with a minimum of 250 hours experience and preferably IFR capable. If you own or have access to suitable aircraft and meet these qualifications, please consider volunteering to fly at least a single mission for them this year. By doing so you will make a huge difference in the quality of someone's life. For more information, visit their website: www.pilotsforpatients.org.
