A light personal aircraft manufacturer is considering a site near Covington's airport for a manufacturing plant. The company would build a 100,000-square-foot facility to produce one-man aircraft. It would employ 80 workers initially, and up to 600 workers over the next five years. The company is considering several communities, City Manager Steve Horton said Monday.
