Hi Steve,  It looks like a boon for St. Cloud. Is the airport for General Aviation?  My husband years ago worked at Fixed Base operations.

Hi Marchel, Yes it is a general aviation airport with 2 FBOs. We had commercial service before Delta took over Northwest and shut off our Airlink service. I used to fly our of this airport years ago, and loved the people at St. Cloud Aviation.
