Park Rapids Minnesota PO Box 111 56470

A Park Rapids man who already has an airfield named after him will be inducted into Minnesota's Aviation Hall of Fame in April.

Dave R. Konshok, who has been involved in Park Rapids aviation 55 years, will be the honoree at a ceremony April 20 at the Mall of America.

In that honor, he joins Park Rapids resident Noel Allard.

Konskok, the father of City Council member Dave W. Konshok, became a licensed pilot right after WWII. Although he no longer flies, the senior Konshok has logged miles and miles into his flight books.

"To get an airport named after you while you're still alive is a pretty rare event," son Dave said at Tuesday night's council meeting.

Residents are lining up a crowd of support to attend the ceremony. Contact either Allard or Konshok junior if you're interested.
