American Association of Airport Executives (NWAAAE). Annually, NWAAAE recognizes those individuals and companies who represent the very best in the field of aviation.

“Troy brings more than 30 years of airport experience to bear, first at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC), where he served in numerous roles including Acting Airport Manager, and now for the past 16 years at COS,” said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation.

The award recognizes airport management professionals who have gone out of their way and given substantial extra effort to ensure the promotion, operations, maintenance, or development of aviation and/or the airport.  Stover was recognized for the many years of airport experience in numerous roles that has made him an invaluable source of knowledge and history for the Colorado Springs Airport.

“In every area, Troy and his teams have excelled, with a strong team ethic and dedicated service. Troy has been an unfailing fount of knowledge and history about COS and Colorado aviation,” said Phillips.

Troy is dedicated to aviation and more specifically to ensuring that COS strives to be an economic engine for the City of Colorado Springs. He is a strategic thinker and has been chiefly responsible for the growth of Peak Innovation Park. Always willing to share his knowledge and experience, he is a leader who shares big picture ideas to achieve end goals.

Colorado Springs Airport’s small size means small commutes, small lines and small waits. It means friendliness, safety and comfort. It also means big options on daily nonstop flights and hundreds of connections worldwide. For more information visit, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram.­
