Featured Article: Who is Using Your Airport?

Public use airports are available 24/7/365—are you? Maintaining situational awareness and ensuring collection of appropriate fees is imperative to airport self-sufficiency. Uncollected revenue is unrealized revenue.

Special Feature

With the holidays right around the corner, Delasoft and RevJet are sharing our favorite Thanksgiving combo: A fall roasted medley to please even picky eaters and an autumnal whiskey sour recipe to enjoy around a fire.

Maple Sour

Ingredients: 1.5 oz of your favorite Bourbon, 1 oz fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of maple syrup (to taste), 1 pinch of ground cinnamon

Prep time: 5 minutes

You will need: 1 cocktail shaker, 1 cocktail glass


Step 1: Fill the cocktail shaker 1/3 full of ice. Add the bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup, and cinnamon.

Step 2: Securely close the shaker and shake well.

Step 3: Strain the cocktail over your choice of ice or chilled whiskey stones.


Cinnamon-Roasted Vegetables

Ingredients: 1 butternut squash (cubed), 4 sweet potatoes (cubed), 2 yellow squash (sliced), 1 onion (sliced), 2 tbsp lemon-pepper seasoning (or 1.5 tbsp lemon rind, .5 tbsp black pepper), 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp salt, 1/3 cups oil, brown sugar to taste.

Prep time: 20 minutes | Bake time: 45 minutes at 400 degrees F

You will need: 1 large sheet pan, 1 large mixing bowl, 1 spatula, 1 chef’s knife


Step 1: Wash all produce and set the oven to pre-heat to 400 degrees.

Step 2: Using a large knife, halve the butternut squash, then, with sharp, planar cuts, remove the outer skin.

Step 2: Cut the butternut squash and sweet potatoes into 1.5” cubes.

Step 3: Remove each end of the squash, then slice the squash into .5” coins.

Step 4: Remove the outer skin of the onion and slice it into .5” wide rings.

Step 5: Combine all vegetables in a large mixing bowl, and add the oil, lemon-pepper, cinnamon, and salt. Add 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Stir until the vegetables are fully coated.

Step 6: Spread the vegetables in a sheet pan, drizzle leftover oil and seasonings over the pan.

Step 7: Roast vegetables at 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or until soft. Periodically add more brown sugar to taste.

Step 8: Serve with your favorite Thanksgiving entrée, or as an appetizer.


Mix it up! This recipe works with many fall vegetables. We loved the results when we added cubed pumpkin into the mix, and roasting the pan with cabbage, kale, or spinach offered a splash of green that went with all our fall favorites.
