The new Mac Campbell Sr. Terminal Building at the Elizabethtown Airport (Curtis Brown Field) has been in use since the ribbon cutting in early March 2019. Today the facility hosted the North Carolina Airport Association Regional Meeting, according to Town of Elizabethtown Manger, Eddie Madden.
“I want to recognize and thank Eddie Madden. Thank you for continuing to help our airport grow and our town to grow,” said Mayor Campbell during the ribbon cutting.
Madden is continuing his work to grow the airport and the town. Over 50 airport professionals from across the state were in attendance at the meeting.
The large group took part in training and heard an update from the NC Division of Aviation staff on the progress of North Carolina airports.
North Carolina’s public airports annually contribute $52 billion to the state’s economy, supporting 307,000 jobs that generate $12.6 billion in personal income and $2.2 billion in state and local tax revenues according to NC Department of Transportation’s website.
The site continues to report, “North Carolina boasts the nation’s second fastest-growing aerospace manufacturing sector, with strong aerospace maintenance and military aviation enterprises, 14 commercial airline operators and 26 air freight companies. North Carolina is at the forefront of innovations catalyzing the growth of an unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or drones) economy.”Share:
