That is a great idea. Do you use Skype?

Count me in. We could use ERAU Airport Management 408 which is a directed
learning class that would fit your needs perfectly. The ability to us video
feeds etc. will enhance the process.
I will review my library for any extra copies of Wells or Gesell books
regarding airport management and law, and for Ashford and his various co
authors on airport management, parking economics, etc.

Subject: CAA: Mutual Help List, "Mentors for Afghan Airport Staff"
As many of you might expect, Afghanistan is a country whose aviation
infrastructure and processes have fallen well behind international norms. We
are working with them to comply with international standards but sometimes,
what they really need is the voice of experience from airport professionals
in every facet of our profession. They don't attend conferences, don't have
a national association of airport managers to network with and suffer from a
serious lack of resources.
I'm wondering if people working in our business would be willing to extend a
helping hand in the form of exchanging emails or taking Skype VOIP calls to
help advise these proud and determined people. Airport managers,
maintainers, engineers, finance, security, air service development,
airside/landside operations experts and administrators could all make a
tremendous difference by simply answering a question or expressing an
opinion based on their experience.
What I'd like to do is match up Afghan airport/Ministry staff in a given
field to an international counterpart to assist and advise as able. Most of
the senior staff here speak and read English but I can help with translation
What do you think, is this 'Adopt an Afghan' idea feasible?
