Santa Rosa Breaks Ground on New Hangar Facility at Peter Prince Airport

Santa Rosa County officials broke ground on a new hangar facility at Peter Prince Airport that will serve as the temporary home to AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corporation, dba Leonardo Helicopters, a Philadelphia-based aviation company that is expected to bring 50 new, high-paying jobs to the area. In April, county commissioners gave the go-ahead for design and engineering of the hangar, warehouse, and modular office complex. Construction on the new facility is expected to begin later this month.

Bernie Sanders described the situation as similar to the crisis faced by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1940s. He says his $17 trillion plan will save the planet.
