CASA GRANDE — If you ask Casa Grande Municipal Airport Manager David Reffner about the current volume of air traffic, he’ll tell you it’s as “busy as a beehive.”
Reffner told PinalCentral the current usage of the airport is on the uptake with a variety of aircraft and aviation-related activities using the facility. Demand for aircraft hangar space is at a premium with around 40 people signed up on a waiting list.
“We’re a very busy little airport for being a general aviation airport,” he said. “A lot of it stems from the instrument landing system that we have in place. It’s a very attractive facility for flight schools to come and practice instrument training here.”
