Airport Director says sequestration would affect service

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Southwest Georgia Regional Airport director Yvette M. Aehle says the government sequestration could affect the flying community

Here are the ways she says it could impact the area-

  • Our airport has a FAA contract tower that provides critical air traffic safety services to our flying community
  • DOT/FAA announced today that our tower is on the list to close as a result of the pending federal budget sequestration
  • Any funding cutback for the FAA contract tower program as a result of sequestration would have a severe negative impact on the safety of our airport
