And honestly, keeping them out of the private ownership is about the only thing keeping them open in the first place. There are way to many financial benefits to not privatize them, grants, taxes etc So it's probably a bad idea at this point.

Privatization would allow the municipalities to add the airport to its local tax base. So the country would benefit from this. I can't see how it would help anyone else.

The county is not a business. Everything that could be privatized should be. The cost of goods and services would go down and we get more for our buck. A worker would have to work not hide behind the union. The tax payer would no longer be intimidated by the union. The public sector unions have ruined government run operations.

Unlike the County Home, an airport like ours can not be run profitably by the private sector. They must follow the same rules as government and probably are not eligible for the FAA grants the county gets. The exception would be private ownership by a concern trying to attract customers to a local facility such as the Senecas bringing people in for the casinos. They would ofset the airport loses with added casino business.

If private, could be a great spot for a racetrack, outdoor music venue (amphitheater), plus transportation terminal (car rental, bus, taxi, snowmobile, horse, etc.).
