  Operational and crew training flights to begin as soon as modifications and equipment improvements are completed. A 6 station intercom system is being installed to improve crewmember communication. New portable boarding and deplaning stairways have been designed and now being manufactured. Once installed, visitors will be able to board and deplane through the rear cargo door area easily and safely.  This is part of the Phase Two Program described in the latest newsletter/report.
