Aero projects among the axed

Florida Gov. Rick Scott cut three of Northwest Florida's aviation-related projects from the state budget. Scott used his line-item veto power to cut $461.4 million from the $78 billion budget for projects across the state. It includes $3 million for Pensacola International Airport to complete the purchase of parcels needed for the Airport Commerce Park, $1.5 million for development of Whiting Aviation Park in Milton and $1 million for expansion of the National Flight Academy at Naval Air Station Pensacola.
