The Grand Forks International Airport was recently ranked one of the busiest airports in the country. The airport ranked 21st in 2011 and has moved up to 17th this year.

The rankings are based on the number of takeoffs and landings reported by the Federal Aviation Administration at each airport. The vast majority of the airport takeoffs and landings are student pilots training at UND’s flight school. GFK has set operational records in 2009 and 2011 and airport officials expect 2012 to be another record. As of September operations were up more than 24,000 from last year’s pace.
