“Arcadia Municipal Airport has the potential to become the cornerstone of our economic development program,” said George Chase in a presentation to the City Council on Nov. 6. That is why local citizens have formed a support group called the Friends of Arcadia Airport Inc. They understand that a thriving general aviation airport makes a huge difference in attracting new business to the area.
The new group’s mission is to support the local airport by helping the city publicize, promote and attract potential businesses to the airport and county. This will be done by holding events that bring the airport into the public eye so that businesses can come to understand the benefits of locating in our community. Events like pancake breakfasts, fly-ins, aviation exhibits, aviation seminars, ground schools and anything that will help promote and grow the airport are important.
