This week was Small Community Air Service Development Program (SCASDP) week over at BNET. Grant applications for this year’s program are rolling in, and I look at some of the best and worst. The federal government offers up this money to help small airports build up service in their area. Some take better approaches than others, and some come off as downright greedy. Elko Applies to SCASDP for More Service to Reno It’s SCASDP week here at BNET Travel. I’ll be looking at a new airport grant request every day. Today, it’s Elko and it’s odd request for more Reno flights. Escanaba Looks to SCASDP for Marketing Funds A new airline, new connecting hub, and two months without service. Escanaba wants a SCASDP grant to help tell the community what’s happening. Dubuque Looks to Expand Its Unique Marketing Plan with SCASDP An airport with a frequent flier program? That’s the kind of innovation the SCASDP should be supporting. Midland Applies to SCASDP for More Flights to the West Midland/Odessa has flights from American, Continental, and Southwest, but apparently that’s not enough. They want more to the West. Bangor Wants SCASDP Grant for More New York Service Bangor already has year-round service to the New York area. Why is it trying to get funds for even more?
