So I have a question I'm sure will upset a few people! How does your airport handle waiting lists? We have a list of over 70 people waiting for a hangar at our airport. Somewhere along the way, someone started giving special treatment to anyone who tied down on the ramp. If you pay for a tie-down spot, you move to the top of the list. Their logic is you are already a customer of the City, so you get first shot. The Airport Rules the City has on their website doesn't have this rule. It says if you tie-down, you don't lose your spot on the list. It says nothing about moving to the top. There is a rule that says if you have a business or even work for a business within the city limits, you move to the top because this promotes city growth. I know people who have been on the list for years and they're going backwards. When I told the manager that he was not following the rules, he told me I needed to move back to my old hangar... I just moved from one to another one that opened up. I didn't prevent anyone from getting a new hangar, just traded and left my old one open. He says it's the same logic... I was renting a space and moved to another one. The people on the ramp are doing the same thing. It's flawed logic. To me it's similar to a busy restaurant saying they only have outside seating and there's a long list to sit inside. When they seat you outside, you then get to move straight inside because you're already a customer. On another subject, I've told the manager he should have the rules revisited as they have some strange ones like you can't do a straight in approach without prior approval from the airport manager. He tells me he can't enforce that one for a transient pilot, but he can with me because I'm a tenant of the city. I'm dangerously close to calling the FAA, which I really don't want to do.
