beacon at LIA
The Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) at Leesburg Regional Airport is a navigational aid and is also used when pilots make non-precision instrument approaches to land on Runway – 31 during periods of inclement weather. It is critical the NDB be properly maintained. If it is out of service, the City must notify the Federal Aviation Administration and issue a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to notify the flying public.
The City entered into a one-year contract with Jim Saulnier for NDB maintenance effective October 1, 2003. The agreement was then renewed for additional one-year terms in October 2004 and October 2005. Mr. Saulnier is willing to continue to maintain and license the NDB on an annual basis for the City of Leesburg at the same contractual rate. He carries the proper amount of insurance and currently maintains licenses for several Non-Directional Beacons and ILS Approach Systems throughout the State of Florida. Prior repair/inspection results utilizing Signal Connections have been outstanding.
Staff recommends the City of Leesburg enter into another one-year contract with Saulnier Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a/ Signal Connections for the purpose of maintaining and licensing the NDB.
