Jim Desmond (left) was introduced by Dave Kulchin.  Jim is a Delta pilot (30 years) and is a member of the Board of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. His talk today focused on the improvements at Palomar Airport. Jim explained that new turboprop carrier, Great Lakes Airline, hopes to start service back to LAX as soon as TSA returns to the site. The current 4900 foot runway is just too short for larger aircraft and there are plans to lengthen the runway several hundred feet to allow for other commercial flights.
