Hi everyone! I hope you’re enjoying this issue of Airport Business!
We have a saying here in the United States, about “rolling out the welcome mat,” which generally means we take a special effort to make guests and friends feel comfortable and appreciated when they visit.
My new colleagues here at Cygnus Business Media have done just that, in welcoming me as the new associate publisher for this publication and its sister publication, Aircraft Maintenance Technology.
While I officially started in the aviation business in 1986 at Northwest Airlines, the smell of jet fuel and three-letter airport codes has been part of my life since the age of 6. While that was many years ago, I am still in awe when I see a fully loaded 747 go from standing still to airborne in a matter of seconds.
From working in airport cellars snaking with bag sortation systems and robots; mapping business processes on hot tarmacs; or measuring for new signage behind a gate podium, you could regularly find me in airports on all but two continents.
Because of my love of aviation and fascination with the art of getting passengers and freight from Point A to Point B, I’m excited about the new ideas we’ve already got cooking here at Airport Business, and looking ahead to 2014, as we include new sections in every issue, including: Airport Revenue, Airfield Operations, Airport Projects, FBO Airport and Community Relations, FBO Revenue, and Airport and FBO Security Developments and Products.
One thing that we’ve resurrected is a column from the publisher. It will give me a few minutes with you to reflect on what’s happening in our aviation world and talk about what I’m hearing from you.
So I am rolling out the welcome mat for you to let me know what’s on your mind. If there are topics you’d like us to feature or an opinion you would like to share about something you’ve read here, feel free to drop me a line. I look forward to meeting you at shows and events, or through your emails.
In the meantime, remember: Every takeoff is optional; but every landing is mandatory!

I have met many great professionals, and have developed many friendships. I thank you all graciously for accepting me into this industry, and for sharing your passion.
No one ever forgets the first time they smell jet fuel, and the first time they fly, says Karen Berg, associate publisher of Airport Business magazine
