Earlier this month, coinciding with Bolingbrook – Clow International Airport’s Cavalcade of Planes, the Mayor of Bolingbrook, Illinois, Roger Claar proclaimed June 2013 to be Bolingbrook – Clow International Airport Aviation Appreciation Month.
The proclamation cites the Village’s significant interest in the future of the airport, its businesses, users, and on airport tenants including the Illinois Aviation Museum located on the airport.
The proclamation continues by noting the economic impact the airfield has on the local community including its total economic impact exceeding $13 million annually including more than 130 jobs.
Special thanks to AOPA Airport Support Network Volunteer Grant Prellwitz for his continued dedication to the airport and AOPA! If you are in the Chicago area, stop by 1C5 and enjoy the rich aviation heritage at the airport and say hello to Grant!
