Missing out on airport business

Dear Gary,

As a member of the local area, I have to wonder about what is going on about our airport.

I understand that the pilots who gas up at the airport pay for the gas. Also those who park their planes there pay a fee for whatever type space they use. Aircraft fuel is expensive and they have been paying for it. Where’s the money paid for that gas gone? Plain and simple….

Also, as of now our airport is closed to border-type crossing or any aircraft other than helicopters and only if the chopper has it’s own gas. The runways are not plowed. We are not getting any of the business we would get from layovers of Canadian planes or otherwise…they have to land other places that are accredited for border flights.

In God I trust,

Betty Roberts
