March 14 Meeting

At our March 14 meeting our speaker was David Eberly, Lancaster Airport Director.

The Lancaster Airport, built by the citizens of Lancaster County in 1935, is the fourth busiest airport in the State. It is home to 24 businesses that employ over 230 people on-site. The Manheim Township airport contributes more than $50 million dollars per year to our local economy.

It is operated by a five-member Board of Directors who serve without compensation. Two members are appointed by the City, two by the County and one is a joint city/county appointee.

Lancaster Airport covers an area of 850 acres at an elevation of 403 feet above mean sea level. It has two asphalt paved runways: 6,934 by 150 feet and 4,101 by 100 feet.

Sun Air Express offers daily service to and from Pittsburgh International Airport and Washington - Dulles.

In addition to hosting general aviation aircraft, Lancaster Airport is host to a variety of businesses: flight schools, planes for charter, aircraft rides, helicopter rides, hot air balloon rides, aircraft maintenance shops, a restaurant, and a gift shop. It serves the pilots who call Lancaster their home airport and the community.

After the formal meeting, Lion Sylvia presented awards to our Super Sub Salesmen, Lions Manny and Dwight. The pair sold in excess of 200 subs during our recent sale.
