The Federal Aviation Administration requires a large area on either side of the full runway length be clear of all obstacles. 

As most Granite Staters know trees/brush grows extremely fast in New Hampshire.  The Squadron at the request of the Airport Commission took this clearing project on as a community service activity.

It was just one of those beautiful New Hampshire winter days with bright sunshine. After a very cold morning start (- 8 degrees), members were shedding coats and hats as the temperature rose to the high teens. Work continued for several hours and if anyone was cold a few minutes by the huge burn pile corrected that feeling. 

As part of the exercise the cadets put together a pre-activity safety briefing that highlighted the hazards and risk reduction actions that could be taken.  Jay Ennis of the Mt Washington Regional Airport Commission believes 80% of the cut brush was burned and expressed his appreciation for the work of the CAP cadets.  The New Hampshire Wing Commander, Col Darin Ninness, also participated and thank the cadets for their hard work.
