Associate Editor

Paul Haller, who was recently appointed as the President of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners, recently provided an update on what has been going on at Jackson County's James A. Rhodes Airport over the past year.

During the Tuesday, Jan. 23 commissioners meeting, Haller mentioned the airport's new terminal, which was dedicated back in 2015. In an effort to better inform the general public, which he said may be unaware of the various services being provided at the updated facility, Haller provided a number of facts regarding activity at the airport in 2017.

Currently, Haller said every one of the airport's hangers are being rented and have planes in them. In 2017, he said the facility had 672 visitors, which he clarified are not simply people renting hanger space and flying in and out, but rather people who flew in from out-of-county.

Also in 2017, Haller said the airport received a total of 564 calls from folks wishing to learn more about what the site has to offer, 648 planes flew in from out-of-county, the airport had 36 helicopters land there as well as 48 jets, and the courtesy car which is provided to businessmen or pilots to handle their affairs while in the county was used a total of 36 times.

With regard to the number of jets that flew into the James A. Rhodes Airport last year, Haller stated, "We're not Columbus International Airport, but 48 jets is a big deal. That's four a month coming into our county carrying businessmen and executives."

Overall, Haller said the airport is performing as it should. He also reminded everyone that the site's new terminal was constructed at no cost to the taxpayers of the county, as grant dollars were used to fund that project. Both Haller and Commissioner Jerry Hall are encouraging those who have yet to visit the facility, to do so.
