The Hopkinsville-Christian County Airport will likely soon have a “Master Plan,” which will hopefully clear up some issues preventing some planes from landing locally.
Airport Board member Wesley Westerfield says the Federal Aviation Administration wants the local facility to have the master plan study done to completely identify how much space there is and other specifications.
Westerfield says even though the airport is equipped to receive many types of plains, some insurance companies are banning it based on their lack of understanding the local facility.
The county will pay only 1.2 percent of the cost for the study, which will amount to about $3,300. The rest of the project will be grant funded. Westerfield says the process is very detailed and could take a few months.
