That development has not impacted the Tri-Towns regional airport — It’s truly been a better time than normal for company. The airport’s primary clientele is scaled-down particular aircraft for traveling enthusiasts and they’ve been taking to the skies.

“I wasn’t optimistic we ended up heading to do as nicely as we did. But it was kind of an odd circumstance due to the fact it did not really sluggish us down,” explained Airport Supervisor Jeremy Pultz. “When you are out traveling on your four-seater, you’re kind of isolated from everybody and you can get out and do some thing rather of sitting about your dwelling. Folks arrived and flew far more.”
