A well-written opinion by David Dingman in Friday’s Idaho Mountain Express and Guide. In response to the reported closure of Friedman Memorial Airport for safety reasons, Mr. Dingman suggests keeping Friedman open for the 98% of traffic than can operate safely from the airport, rather than close it because of the 2% that have issues with the airport. From the editorial:
“I agree that we need a new airport, for the airlines. The new location will be fine for the airlines but will be a disaster for general aviation (all aviation other than airlines and military). General aviation is a significant economic force in the Wood River Valley.”
