A little old, but I must extend congrats to my old strip:

"In 2008, the Dubuque Regional Airport marked 18 consecutive years of perfect safety inspections in accordance with FAR Part 139. That record is unmatched among the approximately 600 certified U.S. airports.[4]"

As a former airport commish there and something of a newbie to nuts and bolts aviation at the time, I was amazed to see what the staff went through to achieve this.

Now, if they can just keep their commercial service going. It was always a battle. They are within about 70 miles of Moline, Cedar Rapids, and La Crosse, and about 160 miles road miles from ORD..

I love love love the DBQ airport. They have a great operation going there. Picking up NW flights along with American Eagle. I would love to see more increased service there. Side note: My buddy Kevin flies in and out of there as an instructor!

Yeah, I enjoyed my time there--great people. Once they got 18-36 extended, reliability improved much and folks weren't stuck overnight at ORD so much, which hurt our image. I've always wondered about the NW service because to a lot of people it seems counterintuitive to fly straight north to make mostly southernly connections. Just my impression. Are they still using Saabs? That would be the other detrimant. We used to have Great Lakes going to ORD too, but I always wondered if that was actually not a good thing, because the market is probably too small. DBQ has a Facebook fan page if you engage in that frivolity.
