Aerospace Program to Stay in Frankfort

Aug 19, 2011

The nonprofit organization that proposed building a $1.5 million aerospace education center at the Capital City Airport has reached an agreement with state officials to stay in Frankfort. Kentucky Institute for Aerospace Education leaders announced last month that they would move to Southern Indiana if a plan to use hangar and runway space in Frankfort collapsed. But Tim Smith, a teacher at Frankfort High School and chief executive officer of the nonprofit organization, says he and state Transportation Cabinet officials negotiated a solution this week.
