City hires airport manager
Cortney Harris began work this month as the manager of Bryan’s Coulter Airfield.
Cortney is a 2003 graduate of the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology of St. Louis University. She has previously worked at the Lambert St. Louis International Airport and for Atlantic Coast Airline in Dulles, Va.
Originally from Ste. Genevieve, Mo., Cortney did flight training for a year before deciding to study aviation management. She is a certified member of the American Association of Airport Executives.
She said when she visited Bryan to interview for the position of airport manager, she knew she’d found a place to call home.
“I was drawn to the progressive downtown and all the attractions,” she said. “It seems like a great place for my family to live.”
The City-owned airport is on 247 acres on Texas 21. It is the home of PHI Air Medical helicopter service and Skydive Aggieland. The general aviation airport rents hangar space and sells fuel for aircraft.
Cortney said she is looking forward to working on partnerships, particularly with the Texas Department of Transportation Aviation Division, and working to secure grant funding for the airport.
“I think it’s an exciting time for Coulter,” she said. “I see great potential for it, if the citizens of Bryan are ready to take it to the next level.”
