Albertville, Alabama, considers air taxi service

Albertville residents could soon grab a taxi from Albertville to Panama City — an air taxi that is.

Advanced Flight Solution, a company based out of Guntersville, is looking to start an air taxi service that will operate out of the Albertville Regional Airport, according to Airport and Economic Development Director Jerry Cofield,

Cofield said the service allows someone to rent a plane and a pilot and go wherever they need to go.

“In my opinion this is another step to bring our airport into a complete-commercialized situation,” Cofield said. “This is continued growth, and it is continued economic development potential for this airport and this area.”

On Monday, the Albertville City Council will consider granting the request from Brett Kelley, and Cofield said Kelley is ready to get the operation off the ground as soon as he gets permission.
