Do you want to fly?

Lori Curless, the Airport Manager for Crawfordsville Regional Airport spoke to the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club on Thursday 9-14-23. Curlessot herself, has been with the Crawfordsville Airport for 6 years and has helped make the airport one of the top regional airports in the state.

With about 30 tenants paying rent for the hangers, selling fuel to those that land and take off here, having an aircraft rental business and a very good pilot training business operating out of Crawfordsville the airport has grown and has become successful. It is one of the major reasons that businesses are moving here because there is quick access from around the country.

The airport recently supported the Ironman race in Crawfordsville having planes bringing race teams to the city for the race from as far away as Chile.

Lori says she really enjoys being an EAA Young Eagle Coordinator providing free flights for kids ages 8-17 who may want to learn to fly. Lori is also a 2023 recipient of the National Business Aviation Association’s Top 40 under 40.

It’s great having a community supported by an airport with all of these services.
