Podcast: Kentucky Recognizes Importance of Rural General Aviation Airports


When Kentucky's Aviation Commissioner Steve Parker met with Gov. Matt Bevin, and was asked what he needed, Parker said he told the governor he needed money to fix "crumbling" general aviation airports.

Deputy Aviation Commissioner Todd Bloch added, "Before Gov.
