Port of HR Adopts Minimum Standards For Airport Businesses

The Port of Hood River Commission has adopted a set of minimum standards for businesses that want to operate at the Ken Jernstedt Airfield.  It’s the first time such a set of standards has been put into place, and includes the types of businesses allowed and requirements like insurance, services offered, certifications, and other basic staffing requirements.  Port Executive Director Michael McElwee says the facility will remain a small, non-tower airport, but the standards are based on the expectation of future demand.  In addition, the Port Commission approved revisions to the ordinance that clearly define correct procedures for take-offs and landings at the airport.
