PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — The federal Transportation Department has granted city officials in Pierre more time to study air service options.
Pierre officials in November recommended Aerodynamics Inc. to provide flights through the Essential Air Service federal subsidy program. Federal officials in January said they planned to deny the company’s application because of legal and financial issues surrounding Aerodynamics’ CEO.
Last week Aerodynamics said it had named a new CEO to answer the concerns of federal regulators.
Department of Transportation spokeswoman Caitlin Harvey tells KCCR-AM ( ) that the city has until Feb. 28 to respond to the department’s concerns.
Harvey says Aerodynamics has until the end of Wednesday to respond to department’s tentative decision to reject the company’s application.
