Coolidge Municipal Airport was recently designated 2017 Airport of the Year by the Aeronautics Group of the Arizona Department of Transportation Multimodal Planning Division. ADOT selects one airport annually to receive this award. This prestigious honor is based on accomplishments in the following areas: aviation advocacy and community relations, airport management, special events and recognition, and innovative activities and programs undertaken at the airport.
One such activity is the annual breakfast fly-in, which is well-attended by pilots, and adds awareness to and appreciation of the role that Coolidge Municipal Airport plays in Arizona. A number of key city leaders and political figures were present at the President’s Banquet during the 2017 Spring Conference, where the award was received. Congratulations to the City of Coolidge and Coolidge Municipal Airport on this outstanding accomplishment.
