Small Community Air Service Development Grant
The Department of Transportation has announced a $750,000 grant award to the La Crosse Regional Airport for the purpose of assisting in obtaining new non-stop airline service to a destination not currently served. The La Crosse Regional Airport is one of twenty-five airports receiving a 2013 SCASD (Small Community Air Service Development Grant) grant from a total allocation of $11.5 million dollars.
Clinton Torp, Airport Manager at the La Crosse Regional Airport, states â��this grant would not have been possible without the overwhelming support of Congressman Kind, Congressman Petri, Senator Baldwin, La Crosse Area Development Corporation, and many local businesses. The La Crosse Regional Airport will be busy working on new service options over the next several months in conjunction with this grant award. I look forward to enhancing the air service options available to our community and I thank the community for its ongoing support.â��
The Small Community Air Service Development Grant was established in 2002 to assist smaller communities in obtaining new airline service or promoting airline service. The grant program is managed by the Department of Transportation.

Air Traffic Control Closure
The Federal Aviation Administration will be closing approximately 180 air traffic control towers throughout the United States. The La Crosse Airport is on the list of proposed closures with a closure date of April 7, 2013 set. Air traffic control towers serve an important function in the national transportation system and the Airport wishes to see it remain open.
However, if the closure materializes the Airport will remain safe and commercial airlines operations will continue. Passengers may notice delays throughout the entire national air space system due to these cuts and furloughs of FAA controllers. Safety is the number one concern of all airports and we will continue to serve the public in a safe manner.
Please contact us at 608-789-7464 if you have any questions or concerns. We appreciate your patrionage and we will continue to serve areas air transportation needs.
