Gull Air Operated 1975 - 1987

In the summer of 1973, I was employed at the Barnstable Airport as a Line Service Technician. All aircraft ground services were provided by the Town of Barnstable (Airport). The duties included assisting with parking of aircraft, accepting deliveries of fuel, fueling all aircraft and also included Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) duties. Other duties included keeping runway/taxiways clear of debris and (trying to) control the seagulls.

Cape Cod summers were busy... winters not so much. I stayed on after the summer season and at one point took on the position of Airport Operations Supervisor.  Pay was always in question from day one. I remember the ad in the paper read "Town of Barnstable - 2 postions    Town Dump - Gate Guard $2.00 an hour. No experience required. Ramp Service Agent - $2.00 an hour. Experience required.

I took the job hoping once there things would increase. Not so much.

Decided to move on.
