  1. FBO stands for Fixed Base Operator. Basically it’s like a private plane terminal. For example, if you were to fly your private plane into BWI you could not pull your private plane up to the main terminal where Southwest and American are. You would take your plane across the Airfield to the Fixed Base Operator and park there. They have pilots lounge, flight planning room, bathrooms, sometimes a little kitchen area, basically a miniature version of a large terminal minus the gift shops and restaurants.

  2. I have several friends who work at the Salisbury Airport. They’ve told me that ever since Bob Culver has put Dawn Veach in charge that things have really gone downhill. Her spending has gone out of control to the point where for the first time in 20 years the airport cannot pay for itself and has actually had to go to the county to ask for money.
    Miss Veach has been harassing the tenants to the point where she’s threatening them with ripping up their leases if they don’t sign agreements they don’t agree with. She is spending money on projects the airport tenants feel that Salisbury Airport does not need and she won’t listen to input from experts in the aviation field who advised her against it.
    Employees who have been at the airport for many years , some decades, are quitting left and right because of her. Bob Culver has been made aware of her behavior and refuses to stop her. I am very concerned about her behavior. It seems like she doesn’t care what’s best for Wicomico County and that she’s only interested in making a name for herself and Bob Culver. I feel that she will create more debt for Wicomico County with projects that are not necessary or in the best interest of our County.
    The reason that Rosenfeld’s Jewish deli from Ocean City is the restaurant that went into the airport was because every local restaurant that she tried to get in there refused because of her behavior. She had several that were interested but because of her demanding an overbearing Behavior they pulled out.
    Some of the tenants tried to meet with Bob Culver about the issues with Dawn Veach but a rumor started circulating that some of the tenants were possibly going to sue the county because of her. Bob Culver decided not to meet with the tenants because of “possible pending litigation. ” There was never any litigation pending! It was just a rumor! I really feel that rumor was just a slimy way for Bob to try and get out of meeting with the tenants and avoid whole situation.

    As a private county citizen I don’t know what to do about it. I don’t have any evidence myself just my friends words which I trust because they would have no reason to lie. My friends are afraid to come forward for fear of being fired by Dawn.

  3. The airport commission no longer has any power. Bob Culver took away all of their powers years ago and made them advisory only. Dawn Veatch only listens to one of the commissioners, Calvin Peacock. And he does whatever she wants!

  5. All Bill McCain knows is spend, spend, spend. The only reason he ran to get elected to the County Council is so that his wifes employer could get every dollar they ask for. Typical Democrat, tax and spend.

    1. Yes. Dawn Veitch tore down perfectly good hangers and gave them away to another airport! Gave them away! The other airport simply painted them and put them up. They look beautiful! The other company who was supposed to come in and put in new hangers at Salisbury pulled out because of Dawn Veatch. That’s why there are no new hangers.

    2. Also just heard that the county leased a brand new Chevy Suburban for Dawn Veatch to drive home every day. $57,000! By her own admittance she only works at the airport a couple days a week and works from home the rest of the time. How can she manage an airport from home?? She does not even live in Wicomico County, she lives in downtown Cambridge! So the county taxpayers are paying for this ridiculously overpriced vehicle and her gas money to go back and forth. Why does she need a take-home vehicle? She is not Emergency Services.

      1. Yes, Dawn Veatch tore down perfectly good airplane hangars and gave them away. Gave them away!! Another Airport from further up in the peninsula took them, repainted them, and put them back up. They look beautiful! The company that Dawn Veatch was going to have come in and put up new hangers pulled out because of her. So now there’s a huge empty space where the hangars should be. She then decided to paint a bunch of hangers at the airport, spending thousands of dollars, and I just heard that NOW she’s going to condemn those hangers and tear them down. What the heck is she doing over there?

  6. Culver and Veatch want to have a different FBO, but it wants Bayland gone so it will have no competition.

    BTW, the airport has become a sinkhole for county money under Veatch and Culver. And they will be dumping a lot more there in next years budget.

    1. You have Dawn Veatch, an all new Airport Commission (all appointed by Culver), and Culver himself who live in a world of make believe and think they can do whatever they want at the airport. Veatch wants to spend $60M of tax payers money over five years on unwanted hangars for Airport Commission members and their friends so they can park their airplanes in brand new hangars and a runway extension so 757s can fly nonstop from SBY to California, Europe and Africa. Veatch wants to take over all services at the airport and spend tax payers money to fund it all.

      1. Fixed Base Operator. Kind of like the local gas station, except for aircraft. Usually includes fueling services, snacks/lounge for private pilots, minor repairs, etc.
