It's unfortunate

this new training center is not at the Pasquotank Air Commerce Park where it was originally planned. I'm glad COA took the initiative and partnered with Currituck once they realized ECSU spent the money allocated for the Commerce Park aviation building on another campus building. Both President Pro Tem Marc Basnight and Rep. Bill Owens were furious when they found what had happened to the money they obtained for the ECSU/COA partnership.
