An airport manager must make sure their aerodrome complies with aviation regulations and procedures, all within one of the most dynamic and constantly evolving workplaces you can find.

The job is multi-faceted, fast-paced and vital to aviation safety. 

Large airports serving commercial airlines need managers to oversee several departments, but smaller airports may need their airport managers to be more hands-on with areas such as finance, security, maintenance, and more.
