Two Airports; Two Different Viewpoints

Industry group notes Pembroke, Goderich stories
  • The August edition of the Airport Management Council of Ontario (AMCO)’s newsletter, a list of what’s inside runs down the right hand page. In this issue, the headline “Goderich Looks To Bringing Chartered Flights to Airport.” This is a story about how Huron County is working with the Goderich Airport to grow and develop the facility. The next headline reads: “County of Renfrew Will Not Fund Airport’s Runway Campaign.” The similarities are interesting. Both airports are 5,000 feet long x 100 feet wide. Both are owned by lower tier municipalities, not the upper-tier county. Both are looking at a vision for the future. But only one has the support of the entire region.Download our latest issue.
