Steve Petty who has responsibilities for both Sunport and Double Eagle II Airport will join us for our October gathering.  He’ll provide updates and share understanding and his perspective on Double Eagle II Airport.  Bring your questions!

Emilio and Joyce met Steve early this year in early preparations for LOEFI and to discuss use of the city facilities for our monthly gatherings.  Besides finding a friendly manager willing to work with pilot groups, we learned of his considerable general aviation airport experience from time in Louisville and Cincinnati.  Steve started his aviation career from an Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting and Public Safety background.  Steve holds a BLA in Business Administration from Xavier University.  He is an Accredited Airport Executive (A.A.E.) with the American Association of Airport Executives. Join us as we take the opportunity to get better acquainted with an influential leader for KAEG.
