   You DO have the new UNICOM frequency, don't you?

PXE announced a UNICOM frequency change from 122.70 to 122.725 on July 30th.  The new frequency will alleviate the transmission crowding we have experienced over the last few years. 


All hangar contracts must be renewed during September, with the inclusion of a current copy of your logbook entry showing the hangared aircraft as airworthy. These two items are mandatory for every leased hangar, open or closed.  As of October 1, a 10% penalty will be charged for any hangar not in compliance.  Please help us to have all hangars compliant by that date, and save your 10 %.

The monthly  Board Meeting for the Perry-Houston County Airport Authority has been changed from Monday, October 7, to Monday, October 14. The time of the meeting will be 4:00PM in the conference room at the airport. Public is invited to attend.
