Bringing more people out to the airport

A group of pilots are raising money to build a public observation area at Jack Barstow Municipal Airport (KIKW) in Midland, Mich., in hopes that the Midland Community Aviation Discovery Area will help more people feel welcome at the general aviation airport. According to a report from the Midland Daily News, the park-like setting would include an airplane body, tables, a shaded area and display boards that focus on aviation themes, the physics of flight, the airport’s layout, aviation communication, airport history and aviation facts. A website is expected to be created to supplement the information.
