Centennial Airport wins 11th Balchen-Post Award
Centennial Airport is honored to receive the Balchen-Post Award for “Outstanding Achievement in Airport Snow & Ice Control” for a record setting 11th time! Centennial Airport was recognized as the top performing Large General Aviation Airport for 2010-2011.
The Balchen-Post Award was presented by the Northeast Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives, in recognition of Centennial Airport’s extraordinary effort in keeping the airport operationally safe during inclement winter weather conditions.
“As is always the case…” says TAC Air (airport fixed-base-operator), General Manager Dan Bryant “your staff went to great efforts to ensure our airport is cleared and open for business.”
Signature Flight Support, (airport fixed-base-operator) Duty Manager Marc Plummer summed it up best adding “Without that support, we would not be able to perform our jobs and service our customers efficiently and safely.”
As an 11-time winner, Centennial Airport has set a new record for being a recipient of the Balchen-Post Award more than any other airport in the country.
Centennial Airport is a 24/7 international destination and is the third busiest General Aviation airport in the nation. With 3 all-weather runways ranging from 4,800 to 10,000 feet in length and over 1,000 daily aircraft operations, the airport rivals that of San Francisco and John F. Kennedy International Airports.
