Friends of Arcadia Airport had a special visitor today to learn about our progress with Aviation City and the new restroom/shower facility. Mark Baker, AOPA President and CEO toured the campground and was impressed with the new restrooms. The two shower ,two restroom facility will improve the airport camping experience for our guests. It will be ready for use in the next few days.
Mark flew to X06 in his twin Beechcraft Baron and spent a few hours with the Friends Board of Directors, Judy Wertz-Strickland, Mayor of Arcadia and Jaccarie Simons, Vice Mayor of Arcadia. The wind was strong and we could not keep things on the picnic tables at the pilot shelter so we held lunch in the hangar.
Friends would like to thank Mark for taking time to stop and check up on us here in Arcadia.
