At the Georgia Airports Association (GAA) Annual Conference that was held on October 24 – 26, 2018 at Jekyll Island, Douglas Airport Manager, Howard Whidden, was selected to serve on the GAA Board of Directors.  Whidden, who has worked with the City of Douglas since 2007 and has been Airport Manager since 2013, will serve a five year term beginning in 2019.

“I am honored and look forward to serving with the great people that make up the Georgia Airport Association.  I hope to also better serve the City of Douglas and our Georgia communities, to progress our public airport,” says Whidden.

The GAA Board of Directors serve as a liaisons between local airports across Georgia.  The board meets quarterly to offer networking opportunities and resources for information that aid local airports.  The Georgia Airports Association is comprised of 72 publicly owned Georgia airports including Douglas Municipal Gene Chambers Airport.  There are 104 publicly owned airports in Georgia.

“We are very pleased that Howard was chosen to serve on the GAA Board,” says Georgia Henderson, Community Development Director.  “I know he will be an added asset to the board of directors and in this leadership role, he will continue to help develop and grow our airport as well as other local airports, as he serves on the board.”

The Georgia Airport Association’s mission is “to provide, develop, and expand a safe and efficient airports system to meet the future economic growth of Georgia through the full implementation of the State Aviation System Plan (SASP).  The SASP recognizes that airports are an indispensable component of the state’s total transportation system that strongly supports the state’s economy.”
