The Red Deer Regional Airport Authority Board of Directors has announced the appointment of Graham Ingham as the new chief executive officer of the Red Deer Airport.

Ingham was selected after an executive search began to replace former CEO RJ Steenstra who stepped down from the role to take on a position with Fort McMurray Airport Authority. Ingham officially started in his new position with the Red Deer Airport on Oct. 31st.

“We are certainly pleased to bring Graham on board at such a critical time in the airport’s continued development,” says Dave Minhas, Red Deer Regional Airport board chair. “Graham brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in both the aviation and business sector and we are confident he will lead us into the future development of the airport and region.”

Mr. Ingham has over 25 years of aviation and business management experience. During that time he has flown a variety of aircraft types including the B727, B737, A320 and A330. Additionally he has held a number of Senior Management positions including Director of Flight Operations, Manager Flight Training and Company Emergency Response Director. He most recently held a Senior Product Management and Sales position with FLYHT Aerospace Solutions, an aviation software company based in Calgary.

“I am excited to take on this new role with the Red Deer Airport and build on the set vision to become the Aviation Gateway for Central Alberta,” says Ingham. “I look forward to working with the local community to ensure the airport grows as an economic driver that will bring both increased economic activity and pride to the Central Alberta region.”
