Clay County's Midwest National Air Center continues to develop as a major regional asset.
Officially the Midwest National Air Center, the facility between Liberty and Excelsior Springs broke ground July 11 on a new sanitary sewer system. The system will allow the airport to expand for future economic development, which seems likely for an area already served by four-lane Highway 69.
The airport is also the new home of Heartland Helicopters, a new flight school recently featured by Fox4 TV in this article and video.
More information on Midwest National Air Center can be found on its website.
