I’ve written numerous times on the importance of passion. I guess you could say it’s a topic I’m passionate about. I believe that in order to have success and be happy, we need to be passionate about our career. If you chase the dollar, you’ll never be happy. If you follow your passion and do something you enjoy, the money takes care of itself.

Or so I thought.

West Star Aviation Receives ODA Approval

West Star Aviation announces its Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) Procedures Manual (PM) Rev. C has received FAA approval.

The Trump Administration releases a budget blueprint or “skinny budget” for fiscal year 2018, providing high-level detail about the Administration’s proposals related to federal discretionary funding—30 percent of all federal spending. The budget proposal reduces overall Department of Transportation funding by 13 percent and includes language outlining support for creating an air traffic control corporation.  Additional details, including proposals related to mandatory spending and tax policy, will be released later in the spring.

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor commemorates the 75th anniversary of the World War II Doolittle Raid with special presentations for youth and the general public by Jonna Doolittle Hoppes, author, educator and granddaughter of General Jimmy Doolittle, leader of the famed Doolittle (Tokyo) Raid that took place April 18, 1942.

National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) president and CEO, Ed Bolen, issues comments strongly opposing the Trump administration’s budget, which appears to endorse privatizing the nation’s air traffic control (ATC) system, noting that such a move could adversely affect countless small and mid-size communities across the U.S., among others, which rely on general aviation.

The tooling brings more services and capabilities in-house and equates to increased convenience and lower costs for operators, avoiding overall outsourcing needs.
