Lousiana DOTD Aviation Division and Director of Aviation Receive Recognition Awards

BATON ROUGE, LA — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) Office of Multimodal Commerce’s Aviation Division was recently recognized with the Special Recognition Award by the Louisiana Airport Managers and Associates (LAMA) during their 50th anniversary virtual conference.

This award was presented to this division for the state’s work in improving airports to allow for a safer and modern managed system that provide convenient and efficient access for travelers, businesses, and commerce. Additionally, Bradley Brandt, Director of Aviation, was also announced as the recipient of the esteemed Award of Distinction for his service to the aviation community.

Brandt holds a degree in aviation management from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, as well as an Aviation Law Diploma from the International Air Transport Association. He began his aviation career in airport operations at the Denver International Airport. In 1998, he relocated to Louisiana where he became a Program Manager in the Noise Mitigation Program for the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport. Three years later he joined DOTD’s Aviation Division, where he currently serves as the Aviation Director.

“It is an honor that DOTD’s Aviation Division has been recognized by this outstanding organization. I would like to praise the work this division does for our system of 69 publicly owned airports statewide,” said DOTD Secretary Shawn D. Wilson, Ph.D. “I would also like to congratulate Brad on receiving this notable award from LAMA."

Brandt served as a member of the National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO), where he held numerous positions with the organization as a Regional Director for the Southwest Region, Chairman of the Finance Committee, and Chairman of the NASAO Center for Aviation Research and Education. He also served as Chairman of the NASAO Board of Directors in 2017. Brandt is also a Dunbar Award winner, the state’s highest Civil Service award.
