My Local News Arizona - Advertisement
The City of Prescott has announced the new Director of the Prescott Municipal Airport.
Dr. Robin Sobotta has been named to the position, having stood out with her wide range of experience. She’s the Founding Chair and Professor for the School of Business at
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU)-Prescott, where she has served in several roles on behalf of the airport. She’s worked on the airport’s Master Plan Committee and the Mayor’s Ad-Hoc Airport Planning Committee, dedicated many hours of service to the airport and the city.

In support of the strong relationship between the University and the city, Dr. Sobotta is “on loan” through the summer of 2019, including an academic year (AY18-19) of sabbatical leave from ERAU. Her track record of involvement to aviation advances in the Prescott area made her an obvious choice for the position, which she is initially working on part-time. In May, she will transition into her sabbatical leave and focus full-time on the airport, using her 17 years of airport/aviation industry experience. This includes administration, operations and public outreach work at three commercial service airports and two general aviation airports. Her education, training and research roles will also serve her well in this new job.

Dr. Sobotta is the Founding Chair of the ERAU-Prescott School of Business, where students can choose from 12 undergraduate business degree program combinations. Here, students study a variety of subjects ranging from Aviation Business Administration to Forensic Accounting and Fraud Examination.

Dr. Sobotta worked as a business technical consultant to NASA at the Armstrong Flight Research Center, and she holds a Ph.D. in Public Administration from Arizona State University. She also earned an MBA in Aviation from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and a BS degree from Grand Valley State University, majoring in Public Relations, Advertising and Political Science.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
