Outagamie Co. panel supports airport name change

The Outagamie County board will talk next month, about possibly changing the name of the Outagamie County Regional Airport.

County supervisor Tanya Rabec is a member of a special committee that studied the issue for the past year. She says they decided that changing the name to Appleton Airport, makes the most sense. She says business travelers would be able to identify more with that name.

Rabec doesn't think the proposal will sit well with some people.

And Raybec says the airport is missing out on a lot of business, because many business travelers don't realize that there is an airport here. She says many people don't identify with the Outagamie County name, but they can easily find Appleton on a map.
