So the FAA has recently released the stats of the nations busiest towers. It states that Grand Forks International Airport is the 44th busiest airport in the country in terms of operations. This is mainly because of UND students taking the skies. UND uses 92% of the operations, while the rest is used by Northwest, Fedex, and a local FBO. This is pretty good for a town of just over 51,000. I just thought this was pretty cool.
