Assistant Aviation Director Aaron Barth received the 2019 Reliever Airport Manager of the Year Award from the Texas Department of Transportation’s Aviation Division.

Under Barth’s management, Fort Worth Spinks Airport was brought into financial self-sufficiency for the first time since it opened in the 1980s. This was due to a hangar acquisition that helped increase revenue, as well as efforts to get the control tower staffing fully funded by the Federal Aviation Administration, a move that saves more than $114,000 in yearly expenses.
