State Senator Bill Beagle (R-Tipp City) attended the recent groundbreaking for the over $1.6 million expansion of PSA Airlines Inc. at the Dayton International Airport.
“Expansions like PSA Airlines continue to show our economy is improving and that the Miami Valley is a great location for businesses to expand and grow,” said Beagle.
PSA’s expansion plans include the construction of a 7,500-square-foot addition to its existing training center, which will serve as the company’s new operations center. PSA, which currently employees 446 people at the Dayton Airport, plans to create 42 new jobs including flight instructors, mechanics and parts personnel.
Beagle, who serves as Chairman of the Senate Workforce and Economic Development Committee, has focused his legislative efforts toward fostering an atmosphere focused on growing and attracting businesses in Ohio. Since the beginning of this year, the Miami Valley has seen over one thousand new jobs created and a decline in the unemployment rate.
“I look forward to watching the positive impact this expansion will have on our community and working with our development partners as this project progresses,” Beagle added.
PSA, which is a subsidiary of US Airways, has been headquartered at the airport since 1987 and is the only corporate airline headquartered in the state of Ohio.
Senator Bill Beagle serves the people of Ohio’s 5th Senate District, which includes Miami and Preble Counties as well as portions of Montgomery and Darke Counties. He presides as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Workforce & Economic Development. Learn more at www.OhioSenate.gov/Beagle.
