Giant Grant For Big Sandy Regional Airport

The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded the Big Sandy Regional Airport a $4.4 million grant. The money will go toward extending the runway and runway safety area in Debord. “You know what they say, ‘no plane, no gain, and that’s especially true in our rural area, where access is vital for job creation and economic development,” said Congressman Rogers. “This runway expansion not only improves safety, but will allow larger planes to land at the Big Sandy Regional Airport, bringing more air traffic to the nearby industrial park and into our region.”This follows another recent announcement of a new Aviation Mechanics Technician School through Eastern Kentucky University.
