Falcon Field

Mesa’s Falcon Field Airport has been named Airport of the Year 2018 by the Arizona Department of Transportation Multimodal Planning Division/Aeronautics Group.

Falcon Field bested 83 airports of various size and functions in ADOT’s system of airports. Selection criteria included accomplishments in aviation advocacy and community relations, airport management, special events and recognition, as well as innovative activities and programs implemented at the airport.

Don Kriz, aeronautics group manager, said one of the deciding factors in the award decision was how engaged Falcon Field is with airport tenants and the community through its various communications and outreach programs.

Falcon Field’s annual open house hosted thousands of people to view and learn about the aviation businesses and variety of aircraft that operate there, ADOT said.

Tenant/community meetings are scheduled regularly to update airport tenants and residents about airport improvement projects, events and other news and to provide a forum for questions and discussion,” the agency added.
