Park's use of runway moves forward

MILTON, Fla. – A proposed aviation park’s hope to get access to a military base’s taxiway and runway has moved a step closer. The Office of the Assistant Under Secretary of the Navy gave approval to Naval Air Station Whiting Field to negotiate with Santa Rosa County for a limited use agreement. It would allow tenants of the proposed Whiting Aviation Park to use a 6,000 foot runway to bring in aircraft requiring maintenance. Crestview’s Bob Sikes Industrial Air Park has a similar joint use agreement with the Air Force. (Source: Santa Rosa County, 06/04/09)
