Aviation Venture Crew to hold open house, meeting

The Stevens Field, Archuleta County Airport’s Aviation Venture Crew will host an open house and organizational meeting on Thursday, Nov. 19, at Nicks Hangar, located on Piedra Road.

The Aviation Crew will be accepting new members with an interest in aviation. All young adults 14-20, young men and women, and their parents are encouraged to attend. Annual fees are only $15 for a year-round program.

The airport will host an airport tour of the various facilities and aircraft at the field. In addition, the crew will plan next year’s events. We will explore the exciting world of aviation — topics such as air traffic control, earning your pilot’s license, military flying, scholarship programs and a variety of aviation careers. Crew members will have the opportunity to participate in the many Stevens Field events, assist with servicing aircraft and meet the pilots and crews.

For information, contact Bill McKown, airport manager, at 799-1920 or bmckown@archuletscounty.org, or Anne Kautzky at 903-7718 orladyjetpilot@skywerx.com.
