Blind in one eye, new airport head was flying solo before he had a driver’s license 

Self-described “lifelong aviation aficionado” Matthew Leitner was appointed to be the airport director of the Border Coast Regional Airport Authority in October, a dream job for a man who loves the outdoors and was flying planes solo before he could drive a car.

“For the past 20 years I’ve been amassing the credentials with the intention of being where I am today,” Leitner said during a recent interview with the Triplicate. “I believe this is my zenith. I like small airports. I really love what I do. I’ve been doing this all my life.”
