For nearly two years the Menominee County Airport has been working on bringing in new business to the airport. However, some airport committee members believe they have a dead horse on their hands.
In a presentation, last night to the Menominee County Airport Committee by Business Partner, Christian Perreault of Explorer Solutions, the Committee learned what steps they would need to take in order for the airport to pursue becoming a helicopter flight training center.
Economic Development Director, Nancy Douglas says there are things locally that they need to get a hold of first.
Chairman, Larry Schei says he thought it would take a year to turn the airport around.
For now, the committee requested that Explorer Solutions expand their scope and focus on the alternatives uses for the land at the airport and how they can generate revenue.
