Real People: Kurt Dalton, Adventure Seeker and Airfield Ops Expert
“No matter what the odds, a man does not pin his last hope for survival on something and then expect that it will fail.” – Alfred Lansing, Endurance
When you talk with Kurt, you’ll find his passion for living a life explored at its limits and focused on pushing for success. His energy comes through every word as he discusses traditional archery, patrolling the Bering Sea with Coast Guard Search and Rescue, exploring Antarctica’s bounds through Nathaniel Philbrick and Alfred Lansing books, and of course, airports.
Kurt’s aviation venture began in airport operations, and he thrives at helping airports make a smooth transition through coordination, operation, and inspection of large construction projects. He prides himself on adapting quickly to aviation’s fast-paced environment with low tolerance, requiring much attention to detail and constant re-prioritization – truly an ongoing adventure. Kurt brings a strong understanding and approach to airfield safety, identifying and implementing methods to improve operational safety with aircraft flow and looking at things from practical, real-world experience.
“Having been a former client of Dibble, it has been an amazing experience to be a member of the Airport Development team. It is humbling to share my years of airfield experience and knowledge with our team to provide quality projects for our clients. Dibble is the perfect-sized firm for a professional desiring growth and development. The only way to be successful is to take ownership and learn all aspects of project design, delivery, and construction. It is incredible to be a part of project development from infancy to completion,” says Kurt.
From his day to day on Dibble airport’s projects to his outdoor adventures, Kurt brings his energy and desire to elevate the client and the team and reach their respective goals. And as far as Antarctica goes, we know that with Kurt’s determination, one day, he will get there.
