  Palm Beach County Palm Beach County Helicopter Training - the best school for you

HOW TO PICK THE RIGHT HELICOPTER SCHOOL
Palm Beach County Helicopter Training


Before you spend a hundred thousand of your or your government’s money, make sure you get the most for your money with the least hassle and cost. The County has four airports, three of which cater to General Aviation interests and have helicopter training schools based on them… 1. Lantana Airport known as Palm Beach County Park Airport, 2. North County Airport, and 3. Pahokee Glades Airport.

  Palm Beach County Lantana Airport Helicopter operations in question

Lantana Airport Helicopter Issue

Welcome Lanier Park, Atlantis, Lake Osborne, Pompano Beach and other areas that attended the Department of Airports meeting February 21. This is video coverage in rough edit form and is accessible with broadband and DSL speeds only. Part II has some great highlights... a must see.

The Lantana Airport has been operated by the late Owen Gassaway since 1945 making him the most experienced operator in all of the South Eastern US. Hence my request that all financial information be released on that operation since with the most experienced operator, Lantana Airport remains the only airport in PBC that LOSES money. The public deserves to know why since in the end, its our money that's being lost... somehow.

  Palm Beach County Real Estate's Rogue Wave


By Christopher Cullen




The end of year 2000 brought with it the beginning of a real estate price boom that would turn out to have tsunami-like proportions. In the West Palm Beach metropolitan area it crested even higher than in Florida as a whole.

But even though the House Price Index (HPI) for West Palm has been falling since the third quarter of 2006, it is still far above the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The following chart illustrates the magnitude of the difference:
