Galt Airport still flying high
GREENWOOD – When Galt Airport hits the auction block later this month, it’s not the flying operation that will be taking off. It’s the landowner.
Justin Cleland, airport manager and co-owner of JB Aviation Management, said the foreclosure sale approved by McHenry County Circuit Court only affects the land the 61-year-old airport occupies.
“That’s the one thing that has been a bit frustrating through all this,” Cleland said. “Galt Airport is not in foreclosure, it’s the land that the airport sits on that is in foreclosure. It’s been a tough battle to fight – the perception that the airport is going out of business – when in fact the airport is doing just fine. ... We’re doing better than we’ve ever done and I want to make sure people understand that.”
