Volunteers with AOA Badges Urgently Needed
Help PCAM Comply with TSA Security Regulations
The Transportation Safety Administration, part of the Department of Homeland Security, has now mandated that a PCAM member with an AOA badge must be out on our field during open hours when the general public is on our field.
IF WE ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE RULES OR IF WE FAIL TO HAVE SUCH A PERSON ON SITE, THEY COULD CLOSE US DOWN.
This is no joke. The TSA already checked on us late in February, 2015. We need to start getting people with AOA badges on our field immediately, starting this weekend February 28 and March 1, or they could shut us down.
We are asking members who hold AOA badges to volunteer for a two-hour shift during normal Museum hours especially Saturdays and Sundays, to help us meet these stringent new security requirements and keep our doors open. The Museum is on airport property, and is subject to an ever-growing body of security regulations.
HOW TO VOLUNTEER
We are looking at three two-hour shifts on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Time slots are 10:00-12:00, 12:00 - 2:00 and 2:00 to 4:00. You will only have to be on the field if a customer is outside.
- Entering your name on the sign-up sheet in the break room at the Museum.
- Phone the Museum at 707-575-7900.
- Email Christina.Olds@pacificcoastairmuseum.org
We urgently need coverage for Saturdays and Sundays, starting February 28 and March 1, 2015. If you have an AOA badge, please consider volunteering for this critically important job - especially on Saturdays and Sundays because we have fewer volunteers present on those days. You'll need to be outside on the field whenever one or more Museum customers are there. If there are no customers on the field, you can hang out in the Museum building.
PCAM is fortunate to have a large and dedicated community of members and volunteers, and I know you won't let us down.
What is an AOA Badge?An AOA badge is a security identification badge that shows you have a legitimate purpose for being on airport property. AOA means Air Operations Area. AOA badges are typically granted to pilots, aircraft owners, airport employees, employees of organizations doing business on airport property, and so forth. Applicants for AOA badges must apply through the airport at which they need the badge, satisfy several requirements, and pay a fee. The AOA badge is one of many security programs instituted and overseen by the Department of Homeland Security.
Have Some Fun!
Haven't you always wanted more time to gaze at our beautiful aircraft? Or maybe pull up a chair, sit in the shade under a wing and read one the hundreds of books in our library? Or just hang out and swap lies with other aviation buffs? Well here's a really good excuse!
