Tiffany Coffey is the new manager of the Dryden Airport.
She comes over from the Red Lake Airport where she spent the last eight years as safety programs administrator.
Coffey replaces Norm Sanders who retired at the end of 2019.
Her credentials include serving as a certified member of the International Association of Airport Executives (IAAE).
She is regarded as an expert in regulatory compliance areas such as quality assurance, airport occupational health and safety awareness, Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) and emergency response.
The 238-hectare municipally-owned facility is now being operated by Loomex Group.
The City of Dryden announced last November it was turning over operations to the Peterborough-based aviation services firm. The five-year contract was awarded in December.
In a Jan. 31 news release from Loomex, Coffey is described as a “life-long learner whose community involvement in tourism and marketing will offer travelers a welcomed customer experience to the Dryden Regional Airport.”
“We are confident in Tiffany to ensure a safe operating environment for aircraft and economic development responsibilities for Dryden Regional Airport,” said Loomex President-CEO Trent Gervais in a statement.
The airport is serviced by Bearskin Airlines. The main tenant is the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, which operates a district fire management base.
