Beyond runways, taxiways and commercial service, PGD plays a significant role in supporting our community. While PGD connects us to other parts of the country, PGD also significantly connects us within our own community. Community outreach, civic and volunteer organizations and public-private partnerships are all part of PGD.
PGD provides in-kind support for “Youth in Aviation” education opportunities and is home to the Civil Air Patrol, Charlotte County Composite Squadron and Experimental Aircraft Association, Chapter 565. Both organizations play a crucial role in education today’s youth about aviation. In addition., Civil Air Patrol serves as the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force. After hurricanes blow through – direct hit or not – our Civil Air Patrol chapter assembles and provides critical relief support
Events like the Florida International Air Show, hosted by PGD for years, provide a convening opportunity for the community to gather, connect and celebrate aviation.
PGD is proud to support and be a part of this community.
