Doesn't the 'small' issue of planning permission have to be resolved ?
I thought that Mansfield was still in High Court precedings with Weston, Tassagart and of course CityWest, it was mentioned in the Independent last week.
Just cos there be bulldozing, don't mean its legal...
Because according to their website they don't own any airports outside of east to mid-east US and 1 in Canada. I find it sort of hard to believe that instead of expanding their base in the Western United States (which on it's own is probably a bigger aviation market than the whole of Europe) they would spend $50m on a what is still (even after the money Jim spent there) a sub-standard general aviation field in the middle of a very very unsupportive town. But that's just me, I'm not in the aircharter or airport owning business, mabye I'm nuts.
On another note the reason there are instrument approaches and such facilities in the US is because they are all government funded, that's why landing fees don't exist except in the big internat. airports and why everywhere (especially places like Florida) have radar, ILSs, VORs, la la la. The government here could be lobbied for a bit more investment in the air transport sector, but then again, they can't even split up Aer Rinta without almost causing a riot so I don't think Charlie will be coming out to Weston with a briefcase anytime soon.
By the way the regarding "a bit more investment in the air transport sector" there is actually a vast amount of money being spent on air transport in Ireland, but mostly it is going on PSO payments to airlines, using most of the regional airports and in support of the regional airports also.
All a matter of choice.
