The City of Sallisaw has seen an increase in flights and other activity at the Sallisaw Municipal Airport in the last six months. The increased attention to the airport has been driven by a new Fixed Base Operator, as well as location and fuel prices.
“In January of this year we contracted with T3 Aerosports to be the new FBO for the airport. Owner Tom Hanning has really done an excellent job bringing activity to the airport as the new FBO. His training in aircraft maintenance and flight training, along with his networking with pilots, has proved to be a great asset for our airport. We have looked for ways to get the airport more activity through the years, and we believe we have found the right partnership to meet that goal,” said Keith Skelton, City Manager.
