Molzen Corbin Celebrates Cinco de Mayo with Mesilla, New Mexico at Gazebo Ribbon Cutting

MESILLA, NM (May 3, 2014) - The town of Mesilla, NM celebrated Cinco de Mayo in style this past weekend, and here at Molzen Corbin we feel fortunate to have been a part of the festivities.

We truly enjoyed seeing Sal Hernandez and his Mariachi Alma de Jalisco christen the refurbished bandstand – aka the kiosko – in Mesilla Plaza, knowing that our very own Architecture Department designed the recently completed and historically accurate restoration for the notable gazebo, originally built in 1932. 

Mesilla Mayor Nora Barraza announced at Saturday’s ribbon cutting ceremony, "It's a much safer and sounder structure, while maintaining the original form." 

Congratulations, Mesilla! And mil gracias for once again allowing Molzen Corbin to be part of your community’s family. 

Thanks, too, to ESA Construction, the terrific contractors who made it all happen.

Molzen Corbin Founder Honored

RUIDOSO, NM (September, 2013) - Dayton F. Molzen, PE, who founded Molzen Corbin in 1960, recently was presented with the time-honored “Bob White Bowl” awarded by the New Mexico State Aviation Division during the State’s annual aviation conference held in September.

Awarded each year to a person who has made significant and lasting contributions to promoting aviation in New Mexico, Mr. Molzen was selected for his leadership and engineering work developing many of the General Aviation airports throughout the State, working with local communities, the State Aviation Division, and the FAA to develop airports and undertake airfield improvements.

He worked with the City of Albuquerque on the Sunport dating back to 1964 providing airport engineering services on the first non-military airfield improvements to the Sunport after the City took over ownership of the airfield from the Air Force. Additional relevant airport work includes the land acquisition and layout of the Angel Fire Airport with Colfax County and the Angel Fire Corporation. Mr. Molzen’s resume also lists work with Las Vegas, Santa Rosa, Deming, Carlsbad, Moriarty, Clayton, KAFB, and Grant County airports in New Mexico. Today, the legacy established by him continues to thrive as Molzen Corbin maintains a very active and strong planning and engineering presence within the aviation/airport communities spanning the State.

Maintaining a lifelong passion for aviation, Mr. Molzen served in the USAF and was stationed at Kirtland AFB training P-51 pilots during the Korean War. He continued his love of flying as a private pilot and owned several aircraft including a Cessna 210 and a supercharged 310.
