LONGSHOT MAYORAL CANDIDATE SUPPORTS REOPENING THE CHICAGO AIRPORT

February 14, 2019 By Amelia Walsh

It’s alive! Or at least it might be, should Chicagoans elect mayoral
candidate Willie Wilson in the city’s upcoming 2019 election.
Reopening one of the most iconic general aviation airports in the
country, formerly known as Meigs Field, is on the businessman’s
10-point agenda.

As a 40-acre nature reserve and concert venue, the once roaring
airfield has been pushing up daisies for nearly 15 years.


Wilson only got 10 percent of the vote, so NOPE.

2019 Concerts include:
Florence and the Machine: The High as Hope Tour 2019
Peter Frampton FINALE - The Farewell Tour



“Now, when there is a race to produce new types of flying
transportation called ‘V-TOL’s’ that operate like a large drone or
small helicopter, already in use in some places and the explosion of
small jet aircraft travel, including ‘shared ride’ services, this
airport could be exactly the facility that a growing modern city
needs,” Wilson said.


Any vtols can fly to the heliport:
"Vertiport Chicago is a private facility,open to authorized users. Prior permission and/or landing
reservations are required (PPR)"
