Actually, I miss quite a few shots because I'm working sometimes...

I think we do a bit of business from coast-to-coast flyers because of our location. Also, no ramp fees, decent approaches, a control tower, and the ability to get in and out are appealing to some of the corporate types. My friends who are not aviators are often surprised when I tell them about the going's on at the airport here too. Maybe people who don't hang out at their local airport every day just don't understand what really goes on or how much commerce takes place out there. We've got about 80-90 based aircraft including a handfull of corporate jets and maybe 7-8 helicopters. Here's the lowdown...
