BROOKSVILLE – The Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport was recently named the 2017 General Aviation Airport of the Year by the Florida Department of Transportation.
The award recognized BKV’s outstanding achievements in airport aesthetics, safety and services. Eligible nominees for this award must be a public-use general aviation airport in Florida. BKV came out on top against other nominees including Boca Raton, Page Field and Vero Beach municipal airports.
“We are very proud of this recognition from FDOT,” Hernando County Administrator Leonard Sossamon said. “With FDOT and FAA assistance, we have worked hard to make airfield safety improvements and infrastructure upgrades for development.”
The 2,400-acre BKV is classified as a regional general aviation airport and is home to the 148 aircraft based there. The airport is owned and operated by the Hernando County Commission and has an air traffic control tower with two runways capable of accommodating small and large corporate aircraft.
