Kestrel Aircraft To Land in Wisconsin?

 - January 12, 2012, 3:05 PM

A Kestrel Aircraft spokeswoman dismissed reports that the start-up aircraft manufacturer is planning to relocate from Brunswick Landing, Maine, to Superior, Wis., as premature, but acknowledged it was a “possibility.” Next week the Douglas County (Wis.) Board will vote on transferring airport-adjacent county land to the Superior Redevelopment Authority, which could then sell it to Kestrel at a discount. Superior also plans to donate another land parcel to the company and issue a $2.4 million bond on its behalf. If the deal is approved, Kestrel could start construction on a Wisconsin facility in June.
