VIPA is cleaning its airfields and removing unsightly equipment or objects that may be projectiles in the event of a storm. Owners have until July 15 to remove their immobile aircraft. Any planes not claimed will be disassembled, and the metal will be taken to the landfill for disposal.

Aircraft owners may contact Michael Todman, VIPA’s director of aviation operations, at 774-5100 (CEKA) / 778-1012 (HERA) or by email at MTodman@viport.com.
