Staff Members

Cynthia Peterson-Manager  

Cynthia had her first airplane ride at two weeks of age, thanks to her pilot father, and has enjoyed airplanes ever since. She spent a good deal of time at KMPR as a child and has a sincere interest in seeing that the airport continues to provide an excellent experience for all who stop here. She is not a pilot, though ride offers are quickly accepted! As she says-“Someone needs to stay on the ground and watch the store”. Cynthia is very appreciative of the dedication and enthusiasm of the staff at KMPR and the MAA board, and would not willingly give up any of them.

Shelley Miller-Bookkeeper/Receptionist/Line Service

Shelley, a becoming aviation enthusiast, and the newest person to our staff. She is always up for hopping into an airplane with any of the local pilots! With background in accounting, Shelley is well-suited to caring for our visitors’ needs. She is married and has two kids. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her kids. 

Jim Fetters-Line Service/Grounds and Lighting Maintenance

Jim, a self-described “recovering lawyer”, has been flying since 1970, often in the 81 Escadrille Flying Club’s 1969 Cessna 172. His interest in aviation stems from growing up near all the activity in Wichita and working college summers at Lambert Field in St.Louis. He has been with us since 2010, having worked previously at KHUT and Wells Aircraft in Hutchinson. Jim also plays a mean jazz guitar with the Jim Fetters Jazz Group-if you haven’t heard them, you should!

Orville Lindberg-Entertainment Manager and Rodent Patrol Officer

Orville has not shown much interest in taking to the air yet, but is well-suited for his work in entertaining visitors and keeping furry pests out of the terminal and nearby hangars. He enjoys meeting our visitors-providing playful or drowsy companionship, depending upon the time of day.
