Big Sandy Regional Airport Lands .4M Federal Grant

The U.S. Department of Transportation on Friday awarded the Big Sandy Regional Airport a $4.4 million grant to extend the runway and runway safety area in Debord.

Congressman Hal Rogers said the expansion not only will improve safety at the airport, but also allow for more air traffic to come in.

The announcement comes on the heels of a Monday announcement by Eastern Kentucky University that they plan to offer a new Aviation Mechanics Technician School.
