Here's the long and the short of it. About three years ago the Lake County Commissioners mentioned that they MAY interested in purchasing the Airport from the City of Willoughby. This helped the City of Willoughby to decide on an end to a longstanding squabble with the Fixed Base Operator (FBO) T & G Flying Club that has run the airport's operations for the past 20 years. Details can be found in the News-Herald Article, here.
A new FBO was chosen this past Fall. The FBO is CLASSIC JET CENTER.
"CLASSIC," YOU SAY!?!
"Classic ..." sounds familiar.
