Tullahoma Airport

The Tullahoma Airport is a step closer to the development of an industrial airpark at the facility. Last Tuesday afternoon the airport authority met and announced that they had received a check for $45,000 from the Momentum Foundation. Airport manager Jon Glass told the Tullahoma Airport Authority board members during a meeting this past week that the check will cover the local share of a $450,000 infrastructure grant,” The Momentum Foundation had told the board that if they obtained the grant then the firm would pay the local matching cost. The company currently operates its business of testing aircraft from a hangar at the airport as well as its other business of operating aircraft from the hangar. Airport authority vice chairman Jim Apple stated that this will help with the development of the industrial park in the northwest corner of the airport. He explained that the grant will allow work to get started for the installation of water and sewer lines as well as electrical lines. The airport plans to work with Tullahoma Area Economic Development Corp. director, in recruiting industry to the park.
