Airport Watch!

Post by Jim » Mon Jan 10, 2011 11:50 am

I would like to introduce everyone to “Airport Watch”

What is Airport watch?
Airport Watch is a system run under the same principles of “Neighbourhood Watch” or “Factory Watch” in the concept that, Anyone, who witnesses suspicious activity at any landing area has a contact at their disposal to report the incidence to, anonymous or otherwise.

What are the conditions of Airport Watch?
There are absolutely no conditions, anyone who has an Airport, Airdrome, Airfield or Landing Strip can participate. Plus anyone witnessing an incidence knows who to call.

What does it cost?
Airport Watch is free for everyone or anyone to Participate in. The ONLY cost to anyone, is the time taken for airport owners to erect the signs and the price of a phone call by those, reporting an incidence to the Owner, Gardai, Security etc.

I have an Airfield/Landing Strip, how can I Participate?
Very simply by downloading the poster on the homepage of AOPA Ireland (as many as you wish) filling in the Phone numbers and placing them in visible positions around your perimeter area.

Is larger posters available?
Yes, you are free to download and enlarge them yourself or, we can send you enlarged copies on Aluminium or Plywood and coated but, there are costs involved for this process, for further information, please contact AOPA Secretary for details.

AOPA Irl. launched this campaign about 3 Weeks ago and there are already in excess of 400 downloads.
We believe that increased security measures is a must in the modern world.

Hi DonalMW,

It states AOPA AIRPORT WATCH
just under that you should see a picture of the poster, and under the picture the Print instructions.

Hi Jim,
it doesn't work here either!
And now that I have your attention...
Enquiring minds (one at least) need to know more about the Roscommon Sidart home-built jet and the gentleman who is/was building it...
Refer to the "Plane Spotting" section of this site.
Another clue (or better still a PM) please??? :twisted:

Jon
(ps) Edited to say that I checked on 3 separate work PC's... none show the poster, all show a flight planning page. Cache cleared and problem persists, def problem with the AOPA site.

Had a look last night and it showed on my screen but I didn't try a print off then. But seeing the problems others are having I then tried and had no problems printing a copy.

Thanks Hugo, You should place a couple of copies around that straight stretch of road up there :D

There has been 83 copies downloaded since Midnight, so the problem (Now Solved!) did not affect everyone!

I had to do the Unthinkable, had to re-write Google Analytics Code provided by themselves!

Anyway, Problem Solved.

Hi, yea, different page lay-out today and I now see the poster. Possibly it might have been a browser compatibility issue ? ? I primarily use Google Chrome.
I may now live in the USA but I'm still in contact with several airfield owners......

Thanks Jim et all
