This morning, I was fortunate enough to be the spokesperson for the Fly Hays Marketing Committee at a press conference. I've been a member of the committee for the past 1 1/2 years and we were celebrating 10,912 boardings in 2011. This is a HUGE accomplishment for our small airport. By reaching 10,000 boardings in a year, our airport is eligible for $1,000,000 in federal aviation grants.
It was a fun morning and we had a great time celebrating! As the jingle says, "Fly Out, Fly In, Fly Hays!"
