The Terre Haute International Airport is excited for the warmer weather and the opportunity for our pilots take off and explore. With the warmer weather comes a variety of other changes at the Airport since the New Year. In January the Airport welcomed a new Executive Director, Jeff Hauser. Jeff is a leader in our community and holds a distinguished and extensive career in the National Guard. He is currently the Assistant Adjutant General in the Indiana Air National Guard and was a Director of the Unmanned Systems Program at Indiana State University before joining the Airport. Recently the Airport, in a partnership with Indiana State University, received a Certificate of Authorization (C.O.A) to fly unmanned aerial vehicles at the Airport. The certificate at the Airport is one of the few nonFAA test site C.O.A.s in controlled airspace in the country. The Airport is looking forward to being in the forefront of integrating unmanned systems into controlled airspace and the general population. The Airport is also seeing great things in the fact that all the buildings on the premise are occupied. They are full of businesses that are thriving and creating an impact for our community. The airfield has an average of over 500 people working around it daily between the businesses located at the Airport and the Indiana National Guard. This number will increase once the new Army Field Maintenance Shop opens near the new Swalls Road later this year. Air operations at the Airport have continued to increase. In comparison of 2013 to 2014 there was over a 30% increase in total operations. This is in part to the Indiana State University Flight Academy relocating to the field in the Fall of 2013. The increase in operations also attests to the fact that the Airport is an economic engine for the Terre Haute community. Having an Airport allows corporations to fly in and conduct business with ease in our area. If you have ever been interested in learning to fly, Hoosier Aviation, our Fixed Base Operator, offers introductory flights and flight training from the beginner level and beyond. We encourage you to stop in and visit us at the Airport for a flight or to gaze at the wonders on our ramp.
