Johnson Engineering was a proud sponsor of Lee County Port Authority’s (LCPA) 2019 Aviation Day held in November. The annual event held at Page Field airport is a free family friendly aviation-themed affair to help highlight the value brought to our community by aviation and LCPA airports – Southwest Florida International Airport and Page Field. Among the aircrafts on display, plane and helicopter rides, local airport police and fire department personnel provided demonstrations to show how they continue to keep us safe in the skies.
