Lansing Star (Newspaper) - April 4, 1990, Lansing, Illinois Lansing Airport continued from Page Al medical service standpoint a Schaller said. A we can get to and service the Airport very quickly and very effectively a he added. A we done to have the difficulty because we have provided in the Airport the Means of ingress and egress a he explained. A a it a More sop Standard operating procedure for us at the the fire department in 1989 had Only four Calls for fire equipment and four Calls for Ems. Many of those May have been the same Call since the Airport dispatches fire and paramedic equipment for most Airport Calls Schauer said. A when you think about the traffic out there that a not even one a month a Schauer said. A we done to have Many runs out recent improvements a the runway Extension a new Concrete apron a new hangar and the renovation of the Ford hangar a have All enhanced the airports safety and efficiency Malkas said. A we like to give these Guys a margin of error a Malkas said. Approximately 151 planes Are based at the Airport at 192nd Street and Burnham Avenue which has an average of 50,000 take offs and landings a year Malkas said. The biggest plane at the Airport a and probably the largest its runway can accommodate a is the twin engine seven passenger 12,500 Pound King air. A i done to plan to have anything bigger than that Here a Malkas said. The airports runway is not designed to handle anything larger Malkas said. A a we re not ready to increase the weight of that. I think we re going to stay the Way we Are a he said. However the Village is considering building another runway. The proposed strip would run North South or in a Diagonal direction Malkas said. It is too Early to Tell where the new runway will go if it will be approved by the Faa or How much it will Cost he said. A i done to see the ground being turned until five years a Malkas said. Though the Airport is planning for the runway residents should not be concerned about uncontrolled expansion Malkas said. The Village promised Munster As a condition of the Deal for the land and air rights that it would not expand the Airport across the state line. Nobody a not even the Faa a can make the Village expand the Airport further than it wants to Malkas said. A they wont make us do anything a Malkas said. A they would never come into a publicly funded Airport and make something when the Village bought the Airport it omitted a proposal to expand the Airport to 435 acres a the same size As Midway Airport in Chicago a from its master plan. A that was unacceptable to me and unacceptable to Lansing a Malkas said. Since then the Village has focused on keeping the Airport Small and making it financially self sufficient Malkas said. There Are two fixed based operators that rent space at the Airport a aviation management corporation a corp and associated air activities. Both companies run flight schools and rental charter maintenance and avionics services. Local residents have nothing to fear from the flight schools Malkas said. A people learn to Fly off this Field but it Isnit As scary As you might think a Malkas said. After All pilots have to learn How to Fly somewhere Malkas said. A that Isnit All bad because that contributes to the flying system pilots just done to get born a he said. Many of the pilots who have Learned to Fly at the Lansing Airport have graduated to work for major charter services and commercial airlines a illegal continued from Page Al a we still have a problem we have to Deal with. Ifs difficult to track Down. The Village is making an Effort. They Are looking into any existing ordinances that May help most of the legwork into uncovering students who Are attending District 150 but do not live within the boundaries is done by the superintendent and principals although private investigators have been hired in some cases. Currently 15 to 20 cases Are under investigation in the District. A ten years ago we had it to some degree a the superintendent said adding that the problem has escalated. A i guess people want to go where its warm or they feed you real Well or you get a Good education. A if we can prove it technically we can take them to court for tuition. College a continued from Page Al be Sam tuck Mac supervisors will receive on site training to recognize and learn How to approach troubled employees to refer for counselling. In addition a separate counselling plan for students is being devised spearheaded by Roseann Michael a Counselor and substance abuse coordinator at Sec.

Associated air has eight air planes four full time flight instructors and 75 students said Gregory p. Payne assistant general manager and director of maintenance for associated air. The company logs 6,000 hours in the air a year Payne said. A corp has three air planes and one flight instructor. The rest of the planes at the Airport Are owned privately by businesses individual owners and flying clubs a friends who Pool Money together to buy a plane to Fly on weekend trips and vacations Malkas said. A from a business standpoint they help the Airport a Malkas said. All of the aircraft based at the Lansing Airport Are propeller planes. There Are one or two Jet planes that use the Airport regularly but Only for Short fuel stops or business trips Malkas said. A if you have to of those jets a year i would be surprised a Malkas said. There Are approximately eight gyr copters on the Field now but there could be As Many As 15 during the Spring and summer Malkas said. However the Airport May not be Able to accommodate the gyr copters and ultralights much longer Malkas said. The Airport might be too sophisticated for the smaller Craft now. A a you re not going to see a lot of ultralights. The Airport is changing in some cases we would go after them for it a Agabedis said. The Rev. David Janke South Holland Public relations director said the Village is working to help reduce the number of non residents who Are illegally attending classes in the Community. A currently we re doing some investigating. And looking into ways of strengthening the definition of a family in our single family ordinance. This May Lead to an amendment to our ordinance a Janke said. A we have to make sure that proper payment is being paid. Any weakening in this results in substantial financial problems for the Rev. Janke granted that a desirable schools Are going to get their share of students trying to get into the District. A ifs a Sticky problem a he said. Hospital program explained that Sec employees and their families will be Able to get confidential counselling for a wide Range of psychological marital Legal and substance abuse problems which will result in More productive employees agencies according to Robert Marshall vice president of student services. A we Hope to be Able to bring a plan to the Board in april and if it is approved have the plan go into effect for the summer or fall semester a Marshall said.

A a year ago we were a Small country Airport now i think were getting the gyr copters create traffic and Airport management problems he added. The Craft Are not equipped with radios and cannot communicate with the air traffic controller or other aircraft Malkas said. They also move slower and have trouble Clearing the runway when they use it. Ultralights and gyr copters usually take off from Grassy Fields around the runway but recent developments at the Airport have restricted space Malkas said. Malkas said the airports new taxiway and extended runway has transformed much of the space into wetlands and retention Ponds that cannot be used for aviation according to Faa rules. A i done to know that you can use that Type of aircraft Here any longer a Malkas said. Village trustees and Airport officials Are currently a scratching their Heads trying to develop regulations for the Small recreational Craft Malkas said. A we might be getting to the Point now where the Issue has to be addressed a Malkas said.
