Asserting that growth is limited by its being part of a governmental agency, the Tupelo Airport Authority has issued a request for proposals from private operators to manage Tupelo Aviation Unlimited, the airport-owned FBO at the Mississippi airport. Once the bid process closes on February 10, the airport authority will establish a selection committee to review proposals and ensure that Tupelo chooses the best candidate. The length of the management contract is five years, by the end of which the authority’s goal is to be completely out of the FBO business.
