Kentucky awarded $11M in federal aviation discretionary grants to boost aviation

Two Kentucky general aviation airports received nearly $11 million in federal discretionary grants to boost safety and economic development within the state’s vibrant aerospace industry. These funds are part of a $477 million nationwide investment announced Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation to improve aviation infrastructure.

The Gallatin Airport in Sparta, Ky., will receive $9 million to invest in grading and drainage work critical to building a new general aviation airport, and the London-Corbin Airport in London, Ky., will receive $1.85 million for needed runway reconstruction on Magee Field.

General aviation airports serve private aircraft and are not used for commercial passenger flights.
