Visibility Increases for the Cattaraugus County Olean Airport
The Olean Airport Support Group, formed in 2005, is excited to announce its enhanced presence in the Western New York region. After gaining momentum and support from local and state governments, it is time to take the next step in their journey for spreading awareness about aviation in Cattaraugus County. To continue carrying out their message, they have been meeting regularly to build a strong brand for the airport, working to increase awareness, both in the community and outside of the area. An extension of their communication efforts includes this web site. Throughout the summer months, the ASG has worked in concert to have an online presence to share news, history, photos, and other important airport information. As the site progresses, visitors will find it to be a source for pilots, travelers, and anyone interested in the Cattaraugus County Olean Airport. The committee member who stepped up tremendously to spearhead this project is Janice Volk. “We wanted to take our mission to the next level. Focusing some of our marketing efforts online became the obvious next step. We’re very excited to get people interested in seeing our site’s pages.” Additional efforts from a support group member came from Jason Wells, who provided technical support and free web hosting from his Olean-based business, Olean Web Hosting. Other members were able to provide information about the airport. Carey Litteer, president of the support group, provided aerial photographs, maps, and other key media surrounding the airport. Ed Flicker introduced valuable information and old photographs to elaborate on the airport’s history and its impact on the community throughout the years. Chris Napoleon was well versed in communicating about airport legislation, and local information for out of town guests. The ASG encourages the community to get involved with the airport by becoming supporters, attending events, or donating to promote the growth of the airport as a positive resource in Cattaraugus County.
