BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Broward County is proud to announce that North Perry has clinched top honors at the 44th Annual Florida Airports Council Conference held in Lake Buena Vista, July 28-31. At the conference, the airport was named the "2013 General Aviation Airport of the Year" for outstanding achievements in airport aesthetics, safety and service in the state of Florida.
The General Aviation Airport awards employs a written submittal nomination process enabling any airport, airport authority, local or federal government official, consultant, contractor, industry partner, or Florida Department of Transportation staff to submit a nomination recognizing excellence in a number of industry categories. To be eligible, nominees must be a public-use, general aviation airport in the state of Florida.
North Perry’s Airport Manager, Nina Demeo, commented on the honor, saying it recognizes a small but dedicated staff who work hard to ensure North Perry is the best that it can be.
“We are elated to have been selected the ‘General Aviation Airport of the Year’ for the second time,” said Demeo. "It is a great honor to accept this award on behalf of all the employees and people within the Broward County Aviation Department that support our general aviation airport on a daily basis.”
In 2008, North Perry Airport received this award for the first time and was also the recipient of the Federal Aviation Administration Runway Safety Award in 2010.
