In an effort to attract aviation industry to the region, Provo, Utah, has agreed to spend $115,000 in site preparation costs at its municipal airport to help Duncan Aviation develop the company’s third full-service business jet facility, which it initially planned to open there next year. The economy has prompted Duncan to defer groundbreaking indefinitely and opt instead to lease hangar space from FBO Million Air.
