The Ak-Chin Indian Community is pleased to announce Tim Costello as airport manager at Ak-Chin Regional Airport. In his role, he is in charge of day-to-day operations, airport planning, and development and implementation of significant capital plans and project upgrades to the one runway airport.

He previously held a position with Cottonwood Airport in Northern Arizona before relocating to manage the Ak-Chin Regional Airport. He brings four years of experience planning and delivering airport improvement projects, successful airport and general aviation services and understanding of safety aviation to his new role.

“I'm delighted to be here at a time when the airport is getting ready to take-off,” said Costello. “The Community hopes to define the airport’s role in the national airport system and make improvements to achieve that role in an efficient and cost effective manner.”

The Ak-Chin Regional Airport, owned and operated Ak-Chin Indian Community, generates the majority of its traffic from aviation training and visiting aircraft. The airfield is home to 12 general aviation, fixed-wing aircraft made by U.S. manufacturers like Cessna, Piper, Beechcraft, Mooney and others.

Costello received his degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York.

He is a Maricopa resident.
