Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (05.26.13)

"The park was conceived to fill a need since over 10,000 school children a year used to tour GSP before 9/11. They can no longer do that due to security changes. The Downtown Airport receives many inquiries from large groups that would like to come out to the airport for tours. Unfortunately, we have not always been able to accommodate large groups due to the size of our facilities. Once the park is completed, we will be able to host groups of most any size. The park will be free to use and open to the public."  Source: Lara Kaufmann, GMU's Public Relations Director, in comments made as the Greenville Downtown Airport invested $10,000 to assist in the creation of an Airport Park.
