Truckee airport accepting applications for new advisory team members

The Truckee Tahoe Airport District is looking for two pilots and one community member to fill three soon-to-be vacant seats on the Airport Community Advisory Team.

Originally formed in 2001 under the name Airport Noise Advisory Committee, the group advises the district’s board of directors and staff on issues of aircraft noise and other airport matters.

“ACAT is a great opportunity to make a difference in the wider community,” said Andrew Terry, one of the outgoing ACAT members. “It’s a great way to stay involved.”

Leigh Golden and Robert Anderson are the other outgoing members.

The three-year term required of ACAT members entails three- to four-hour meetings once a month, along with other ongoing emails and conversations with fellow team members and airport staff.

According to a press release, future ACAT projects include an airspace study to allow members to further refine flight procedures to reduce noise.

Additionally, ACAT is working to place an Automated Weather Observing System along the Pacific Crest to help pilots and provide more accurate weather data for the region.

To learn more and to apply, submit a cover letter and resume to Hardy Bullock, director of aviation and community services at the airport, at by Friday, Sept. 4.
