Supervisors Receive Update on Airport

The Winston County Supervisors were briefed on the status of the Louisville/Winston County Airport by Airport Board President Mike Forster today. Forster noted that the hanger project that is under construction is 90% complete at this time and should be completed by the end of the month. This hanger is to be leased by Taylor Air and will house one to two jet aircraft. Forster also noted that the ten-year strategic plan for the airport has been recently completed and will help with future planning.

Forster also took the opportunity to invite the supervisors to the October 1st Wings Over Winston Air Show. He noted that air show drew more than 2000 spectators last year and as a result they plan to have more food vendors and bathroom facilities in place for this year’s air show.

Forster also provided some information about grant funding and plans to resurface the non-runway portions of the airport.
