The "Glass Bead" Incident
In the last issue of our webletter, we mentioned that Sightline was part of an investigation involving glass beads and their potential as FOD. The incident caused the industry to be concerned about possible liability on airports for poor glass bead application and good housekeeping procedures. As promised, we are reporting as much as we can about our experiences involving the issue.
Sightline Youth in Search of the Truth
Being the youngest member of the Sightline team, I have to ask a lot of questions to learn from the pros about the industry. Most of the time I'm able to grasp the concepts that are discussed, but sometimes I have to dig a little deeper on my own. When I do find my answers they aren't always easy to understand. There are probably many of you who might like a quick course in industry enigmas. So grab a desk and soak it up, you will be quizzed afterwards.
