Curtiss the hawk

Meet Curtiss, our airport mascot who pays homage to veterans stationed at the Punta Gorda Army Airfield during WWII. He is named after the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, the famed aircraft that American pilots trained on before they were sent overseas to fight the war.

Curtiss is a spirited hawk who enjoys socializing with the local community. Keep an eye out for Curtiss at community events and around the airport. He also makes appearances on PGD’s social media channels, so make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
