Greeneville-Greene County Municipal (KGCY), Tennessee: Airport Doesn't Need A Manager

The Greeneville-Greene County Airport Authority’s problem with finding an airport manager is ridiculous.

The airport has a low daily air traffic count, and the only revenue that comes in is from the “T” hangars and several large hangars used by Sky Knight Aviation. Some money comes in from jet and aviation fuel sales.

The Town of Greeneville and Greene County cannot afford paying an airport manager $100,000 a year in salary. A secretary can handle the paperwork, and the Airport Authority can handle any major problems till a large company decides to locate their business aircraft here and other businesses locate on the field.

I don’t see a need for now for a manager.

The FBO manager handles most of the small business transactions as for now.

This is my opinion and I pay my hangar rent on time.
