TSA screening and general passenger traffic are coming to the small, city-owned Concord airport. It's a major step for an airport that has been, to this point, frequented mainly by NASCAR teams on private planes.
Concord city council members will vote this week on whether to give a local flight training center a $56,527 tax rebate over three years to expand. FlyRight is a training center located across the street from the Concord Regional Airport. The company plans to invest $5 million to build a second flight simulator. Concord City Manager Brian Hiatt says he hopes this will translate to more business for the airport.
