WINTER HAVEN — Polk County’s second largest city has found the guy it thinks can help its airport take flight.
Alex Vacha, 28, started his new job as general manager of the Winter Haven Regional Airport on Monday. Vacha had been the manager of the Lake Wales Municipal Airport since April 2016.
“I really loved what I was doing,” Vacha said. “Winter Haven is a much larger airport, but I like the seaplane niche a lot. With the jet traffic and the commercial element, Winter Haven really has a lot going on.”
