Federal funds secured for local airport

September 3rd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Congressman David Trone (D-Md.) today applaud the award of $4,122,800.00 in federal funding for the Greater Cumberland Regional Airport in Cumberland, Maryland. This award is disbursed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and appropriated through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

This new funding will go towards rehabilitating the airport’s runway, protecting the structural integrity of the pavement and to minimize debris from foreign and miscellaneous objects.

    No all we need are airplanes, a flight schedule, and a reason for people to fly here.

    How many millions have been poured into a playground for a few rich hobbyists?

      > Apparently you don’t know the civil air patrol uses that field as a base for search and rescue missions. Also, as a life long member of the aviation community I can tell you that a person doesn’t have to be rich to fly.
