Distinguished General Aviation Award
The airport was recently awarded the Distinguished General Aviation Award by the FAA at the Four State Airport Conference in Kansas City. This award is very significant, as it is the first time an airport that does not have airline service has been selected. When the FAA Central region, which covers Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa, began looking at airports to nominate, they evaluated several factors. Airports needed to be active in the community, consistently do well on safety inspections, submit important projects for funding consideration, and contribute to the local economy, among other things. Here is what Jim Johnson, director of the FAA’s Central Region had to say about Clinton Municipal Airport when presenting the award:
“Clinton Municipal is a very active general aviation airport serving eastern Iowa. They sponsor numerous aviation events throughout the year and have an active FBO. Their most recent state safety inspection resulted in no discrepancies, and they frequently receive accolades from pilots for their runway condition and snow removal efforts. They maintain a modern and accessible terminal building and they have focused their recent AIP funding on important projects like taxiway and apron pavement improvements and terminal area fencing to secure the airport.”
Congratulations to the Clinton Municipal Airport team on this tremendous accomplishment.
