Cape's selection by corporation brings recognition
Friday, December 16, 2005
Cape Girardeau is getting play of the Aircraft Owners & Pilot's Association trade magazine "AOPA Pilot."
Associate editor Stephen W. Ells notes in his column for the December issue that the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport was selected from 40 sites to be the location of Commander Premier Aircraft Corp.
Commander will employ 50 to 75 people at the Cape Girardeau facility. Ells describes Commander Aircraft purchased by investors as a "moribund company." AOPA Pilot's circulation is more than 360,000.
