Show Notes

In this episode, Mike Bagwell sits down with Joe Tate, Airport Manager of the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Regional Airport.

In what may be a surprise to some, Lincoln County has an Airport (and a very active airport)!  Joe shares how he was first introduced to aviation, when he received his pilots' license (at an early age), where he first worked as a Pilot, and how he found his way to become the Airport Manager in Lincoln County. 

Joe shares some very interesting information about the Lincoln County Airport including when, why, and how the Airport was first built, who owns/operates the Airport, the improvements that have been made since the Airport first opened, the number of flights that arrive (and take off), the types (and costs) of aircraft that are kept on-site, and the types of structures that are on-site and available for lease. 

Joe other discusses who is utilizing the airport, the impact that the Airport has on Lincoln County's community and the economy, and goes into detail about the other amenities offered at the Airport such as aircraft maintenance, hangar space, the availability of fuel to be purchased, and a pilot's school. 

And lastly, Joe shares a few stories about who he has met while serving as the Airport Manager, talks about some great news regarding future improvements of the Airport, and invites the public out to become familiar with the day-to-day activities.

Enjoy the conversation with Joe Tate!
