In response to the article, "Express editorial draws airport manager rebuke": Some people want to make Friedman an "all weather-capable, safe" airport? There's no way!
With the mountains surrounding the airport on three sides, two sides of which are less than half a mile away from the runway, all they're going to do is put the flying public and the residents of Hailey at great risk.
These people need to use some common sense. Friedman's a great airport and perfectly safe in good weather. It's not an "all weather-capable, safe" airport, nor will it ever be. Mountains and bad weather are a recipe for disaster.
