Customers and Friends,
Our longtime CSR, Karen DuBose, is leaving Showalter Flying Service to move with her husband and daughter to Georgia to begin a new chapter in their lives. Karen’s last day is this Sunday, June 23rd. We have enjoyed Karen’s presence at our FBO and her hospitality toward our customers. Chances are she offered you fruit water, coffee or cookies every time she saw you. She also has an uncanny knack at finding some way she is either related to or knows someone in common with just about everyone that passes through our doors. We thank Karen for her years of dedicated service and wish she and her family much success and happiness in GA!
Of course Karen’s leaving means that we have an opening at our front desk for a new CSR. Please take a moment to look at the attached job description and information. If you know someone that is currently looking for a job and has the right personality to fit into our FBO, we want to know! We would much rather get a lead on a potential employee from you than from an advertisement. You may send questions to Ed Cavanaugh at firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to email me.
Please help us find the right person for this job!
Customer Service Manager
Showalter Flying Service
Under Title 19 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 122.23, certain General Aviation aircraft (generally private and unscheduled charter aircraft) arriving from some areas south of the United States are required to provide advance notices of arrival and land at certain designated airports for US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) processing unless exempted from this requirement through an Overflight Exemption provided for in § 122.25.
Beginning June 17, 2013, CBP will implement the following changes to the Southern Border Overflight Exemption process:
1) Certain requirements for Overflight Exemption applications will be waived as a matter of CBP's enforcement discretion, pending revision of the applicable CBP regulations. Specifically, CBP will no longer enforce the following information requirements under Section 122.25 for overflights:
2) All Overflight Exemptions will now allow operators to overfly designated CBP airports - from all foreign points - to all airports where CBP services are normally available, provided the operator has complied with all other applicable CBP requirements - including APIS - and landing rights and permission to land have been granted by the receiving port of entry.
3) CBP will also no longer enforce the requirement that operators utilizing an Overflight Exemption carry one approved passenger (19 CFR 122.25(c)(7)) provided the operator has complied with all other applicable CBP requirements - including APIS - and landing rights and permission to land have been granted by the receiving port of entry. GA operators wishing to utilize an existing or newly granted Overflight Exemption will be allowed to arrive with no passengers; with passengers already listed within an existing Overflight Exemption; or with passengers not listed within an existing Overflight Exemption.
All General Aviation operators utilizing an Overflight Exemption must still abide by all other applicable CBP requirements and regulations, to include:
