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 [email protected]

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
