Community outreach efforts were also mentioned in the application, like the airport’s annual Airport Awareness Fly-In/Drive-In and Young Eagles Flight rally.
The award includes a $1,000 cash grant to be given to an eligible aviation organization of the airport’s choosing, which Dalton said will go to the Logansport Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1471.
Logansport Mayor Ted Franklin, Cass County Commissioner Ralph Anderson, Cass County Councilman Jim David and several other local officials attended the event Thursday in Plymouth.
Dalton said he was thankful for their support and the support of many others in the community.
“It’s our base pilots and our customers and the entire community that make this airport what it is,” he said.
