Ohio Aviation Association Honors LGSTX as 2021 Airport Business of the Year
26 Aug 2021
The Ohio Aviation Association (OAA) is proud to continue the tradition of honoring those individuals or entities that go above and beyond for airports and aviation in Ohio. At the OAA’s 2021 Annual Conference, held virtually this week, LGSTX Services, Inc. was presented as the 2021 Airport Business of the Year.
This award recognizes a business with a mission, services, and goals that result in a positive impact on a community, workforce, and local airport. LGSTX Services has helped propel Ohio’s aviation and airport industry forward by performing its core mission and operations exceedingly well.
LGSTX Services is the contracted operator of Wilmington Air Park (KILN) on behalf of the Clinton County Port Authority. Wilmington Air Park is a center of economic development for the region and currently the highest-volume freight airport in Ohio. With an airport that has nearly 2,000 acres, two runways that can land nearly anything that flies, plus nearly 2.8 million square feet of facility space on the property, it takes a special company to keep the operations going day and night. They have played an instrumental role in the efforts to secure the return of air cargo operations to KILN and they serve as a great partner in the planning and continued development at the airport. A team of 30 talented and devoted workers focus exclusively on supporting KILN every day and their hard work shows.
“LGSTX’s expertise and commitment to aviation, air cargo operations, and Ohio, is clear every day,” said Stacey Heaton, Executive Director of the Ohio Aviation Association. “Ohio’s proximity to the US population provides a great opportunity for aviation and freight logistics and we are lucky to have LGSTX Services here to help.”
Founded in 1965, the Ohio Aviation Association is a non-profit corporation committed to airport development and safety in Ohio. The OAA is the voice for the airports that contribute to the economic vibrancy and well-being of Ohio, the birthplace of aviation. OAA membership is made up of nearly 700 individuals from over 75 airports and educational institutions and over 35 aviation-related companies.
