“Counties have realized that if you don’t have a good-sized airport — one with at least a 4,000 to 5,000 foot runway — businesses will look at you and rule you out because you are behind the times.”
— Steve Parker, deputy commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Aviation on the state’s push to open new GA airports.
“For more than 100 years, we pilots and our passengers have enjoyed a unique perspective on the earth. That same ‘view from the air’ helped shape Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s strong appreciation for the environment and led them to conclude that, in order to enjoy our modern technological advancements, as well as preserve the environment on which we rely, balance must exist.”
— John King, director of the Lindbergh Foundation
