Cullman Airport Director Ben Harrison On National Aviation Committee

Cullman Airport General Manger Ben Harrison has been selected to serve on the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) Airport Business Committee.

The Airport Business Committee is comprised of NATA members relative to operating an on-airport aeronautical business and are familiar with issues that arise as part of owning, operating or managing airports or aeronautical businesses including minimum standards, leasing, community relations and environmental and security concerns.

Committee members support the NATA strategic plan as it relates to on-airport businesses, including working in a cooperative manner with NATA staff, Congress and the various regulatory agencies in the monitoring of regulatory and legislative proposals. NATA’s advocacy is member-driven, utilizing a committee structure encompassing the members’ lines of business to ensure a progressive and proactive advocacy agenda.

Harrison has been appointed to a three-year term and is expected to attend meetings held three times a year. He had these thoughts upon learning of his selection:

“The committee helps serve as the voice of aviation businesses and I am honored to be invited to join the committee.”

For more than 75 years, NATA has ensured the needs of this critical Industry segment are appropriately represented by the staff. NATA member companies provide fuel, on-demand air charter, aircraft rental, storage, flight training, aircraft maintenance, parts sales, line support and business aircraft and fractional ownership fleet management, and including FBOs run by airports.

“We are excited to welcome Mr. Harrison on the NATA Airport Business Committee. His years of experience in airport management and his passion for aviation will be invaluable to our committee. We look forward to having him on board,” stated NATA’s Executive Vice President and General Counsel Tim Obitts.

Cullman Airport is jointly operated by the City of Cullman and Cullman County. More than 80 aircraft are based at the facility that boasts a 5,500-foot runway and parallel taxiway.

Harrison has worked at the airport for 6 years and was promoted to General Manager in 2014.
