Airport Staff Leads FOD Walk

Charlotte County Airport Authority staff recently led a “Fall FOD Walk” to pick up foreign object debris on the commercial aircraft ramp.

This effort is essential for keeping the airfield safe and preventing aircraft damage. FOD may include old aircraft parts, tools, garbage or any foreign object which could potentially cause damage.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • Jeff Bundy, Allegiant General Manager, earned the award for “Strangest Find.”
  • Joydell Alexander, Allegiant Ramp Supervisor, earned the award for “Heaviest Haul.”
  • Terrell “Hoss” Dennis, Allegiant Ramp Agent, earned the award for “Most FOD by Volume.”

Thank you to all the Allegiant team members and Airport Authority staff that came out to participate!
