Podcast: Tips for Winter Operations

Oct. 25, 2021

Winter weather has already arrived in some parts of the U.S., and with it comes additional challenges for business aircraft operators and the airports that serve them, especially when runways and ramps become contaminated. “It’s important that if you see something, you say something so that we, as the airport operator, can actually fix the conditions,” says John Ostrom, manager of airside operations for Minneapolis, St. Paul International Airport (MSP). “We want to make sure that the operators, the flight crews – everyone who operates in and out of our airports – have safe surfaces and can have a safe experience.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • John Ostrom, manager, airside operations, Minneapolis, St. Paul International Airport (MSP)
  • Jonathan Seibert, manager, airport operations, Teterboro Airport (TEB)
  • Elliott Taub, CAM, assistant manager for a Part 91 operator
