Mississippi Airports Association Conference at the Golden Nugget

Mississippi Airports Association Conference is hosting their annual conference at the Golden Nugget in Biloxi.

The Mississippi Airports Association Annual Conference is the premier meeting for aviation business executives in the state.

Those in attendance are airport directors and board members, engineers, consultants, and representatives from government and other aviation-related business.

Lt. Colonel Sean Cross, a pilot with the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron, shared his experience tracking some of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the Coast. “The great thing about coming out to these conferences is the education and outreach. I like to always tell people don’t take Katrina and lock her up in a box, get the pictures out, educate the youngsters, tell your kids what it is like when you have these massive storms that are making landfall because it’s all about listening to civil authorities and emergency managements.”

The conference kicked off yesterday and will finish up tomorrow.
