In October 2008, Don Powers was honored as a founder
of the Oklahoma Airport Operators Association. Don, one of six founders of the organization, served for many years

as President because he did not want a large airport to monopolize the organization. During the organization's infancy,

become a viable professional group. Today, the organization has money in the bank and usually has more than thirty
members at its meetings.
