I like this guy’s initiative. If the state of Illinois won’t follow through than he’ll just build his own airport. And not just in any location.
Jim Bult built his airport within the very same footprint targeted by Illinois Department of Transportation officials for decades as the spot for the next major metropolitan airport in the Chicago area. “I’ve been waiting and waiting for the last 20-some years and they couldn’t get it done,” Bult said. “I just want a quality runway and hangar here.”
Bult not only beat Governor Quinn to the punch, but also the last four Governors. Contrary to some of our politicians, he did what he promised. I think I’ll take a hop to Peotone this summer.
