For those who may not realize the importance of general aviation airports and the vital services they offer the local community and the entire country, recent events give good examples: Earlier this month, local newspapers wrote about officials inspecting freeze-damaged crops. One story read in part, "Following the three-hour tour, officials boarded a twin-engine plane at Camarillo Airport for the return flight to Sacramento."
