The Director of Aviation at the Elmira Corning Regional Airport, Ann Crook, announces she’s leaving the Southern Tier.

Crook said Wednesday at a TSA press conference she has accepted a job as a manager at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport.  

Crook has been the Director of Aviation at ELM since June of 2007.  

“I am proud of all that we have accomplished at ELM including construction of a major extension to the main runway, completion of a 20-year plan for the future of the airport, addition of parking lots to accommodate our growth, and improvements to the terminal building,” Crook said.
 
“We have also created an enterprise fund for accounting for airport finances, and completed an airline rates and charges model.  These two efforts have never been done at ELM, but are industry standard practices.  The position at MVY is a unique opportunity that I’m looking forward to, but I’m pleased to know that I’m leaving ELM in a better position than when I came.  I will be working with Chemung County to develop a transition plan to find our new airport manager and ensure that the positive growth for the Airport will continue,” she said. 
 
Crook also expressed her gratitude to the Airport staff and employees for the attitude of support and teamwork that they provide.
 
“It’s been exciting to work with the airport staff, the County Executive, and Legislature through this period of dynamic growth,” she said.
 
“I want to thank Ann for her many years of dedicated service to Chemung County,” Chemung County Executive, Tom Santulli said.
 
“The airport has certainly flourished under direction. I wish her the best in all her future endeavors,” He said. 
 
A search for a new airport manager is underway.
