In recent weeks several letters have appeared in this paper and others, expressing concern over the future of the model aircraft Aerodrome in Hempstead Harbor Park. Since Nassau County turned the park over to the Town of North Hempstead, the future of the Aerodrome was in jeopardy. Recently, the Hempstead Harbor Aero Modelers Society, the HHAMS, had a meeting with Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman to discuss the matter. He promised to meet with the County to discuss the reopening of the Aerodrome and get back to us as quickly as possible.
True to his word, a mere nine days after your meeting, Mr. Kaiman notified us that he had met with the county and our flying field will be reopening this year. We had decided to talk publicly about our concerns and I feel it is only fair that we thank him just as publicly for helping us regain our beloved Aerodrome. On behalf of the entire membership of the HHAMS and all the independent fliers, too, let me now express our gratitude to Mr. Kaiman for listening to us and helping us get our Aerodrome back, thank you, Mr. Kaiman, so very much.
President of the HHAMS
