I see that posting they don't like are "deleted". How convenient.
A plane lands with family members onboard. You pull up to the curb and here comes the cop! ...is it all about trying to make people 'pay to park'? What is AJE Airport afraid of? I mean, AJE is not an international hub like LA, Dullas, JFK, O'hare. But sure enough..., pull up to the curb and here comes the cop.
Good Morning, We would like to invite you in celebrating Sgt. Kate McHugh is receiving her wings and becoming the FIRST law enforcement SABLE Helicopter Pilot. We are trying to recognize her as much as we can. Because it is a huge accomplishment. If you could share her story we would really be grateful! Thanks so much!

Any decisions on keeping the airport open or closed during Hurricane Dorian? My Mom has a flight out on Wednesday morning
Has the fuel delivery issue been resolved?
Don't delay planes for rediculous criteria.
Who is Albert J. Ellis, I looked it up on line but not sure if he was the Psychiatrist. What is the story on getting his name on the Airport. Just wondering, I'm flying back and always wonder who is this guy. Thanks in advance.
Electricity is out!
Was there any damage to vehicles in the parking lot due to the hurricane? I flew out before it came through.
