I have listened carefully to the debate surrounding the “Runway Rehabilitation Project” as proposed by the Lakes District Airport Society. I am in support of the project for the many reasons brought fourth in social media, in our local paper and on the street. I have heard the opposing side’s story as well and it appears to me that their concern rests mainly on the personal cost to them. Which brings me to my simple formulae.
1) Look at what surrounds you and you will determine what has value to you.
2) Determine the monetary cost of those items.
3) Establish the actual cost of the proposed “Runway Rehabilitation Project” improvements would be to you personally.
4) Consider the possibility of you or a loved one requiring the “medevac” services at some time in your life here.
To coin a phrase… “it’s a no brainer.”
