Florida Airport Looks to Privatize

On November 4, 2010, the FAA published a notice that it has accepted the Airglades Airport into the Airport Privatization Pilot Program.  Airglades Airport is a small general aviation airport near the town of Clewiston, Florida that is owned and operated by Firm client Hendry County.  In 1996, Congress created the Airport Privatization Pilot Program to permit the privatization of no more than five airports upon the satisfaction of certain conditions.  Other airports currently participating in the Airport Privatization Pilot Program include Chicago Midway (IL), Briscoe Field (GA), and San Juan Luis Muñoz MarÍn (PR).
