Small Airport To Be Sold To Raise Money To Fund Larger Airport

OZARK, MO. – Air Park South, located west of Ozark, Missouri, is being sold with proceeds from the sale going to Springfield-Branson National Airport for general aviation improvements. Both the Federal Aviation Administration and Missouri Department of Transportation have agreed to the sale. Air Park South includes a 3,000-foot asphalt runway. Attempts to purchase an additional 36 acres to extend the runway to 5,000 feet at Air Park South were unsuccessful. The property owners were apparently asking $220,000 an acre (www.flyspringfield.com/land).
