The Jackson County Airport Authority agreed to a mutual parting of ways with its short-lived fixed base operator.
The JCAA voted Tuesday to release Spirit Aviation from its contract at a jointly agreed upon date with Spirit. This decision came only 24 hours after the JCAA met with the board of commissioners to discuss the direction of the airport.
The airport authority and the county will now look into the cost of providing their own service rather than have an FBO do it.
“As a whole, from what I understand, the sentiment was that, hey, we need to move forward with this on our own,” interim JCAA chairman Jonathan Milford said.
