The Covington Municipal Airport continues to draw interest from a light, personal aircraft maker that is looking to build a 100,000 square-foot facility and employ around 80 workers in its initial stage. The company had previously explored 20 acres of land next to the airport and Nisshinbo, the brake manufacturer, but is now looking at property off Williams Road, City Manager Steve Horton said. The company asked for the cost of land, and Horton said he estimated to be worth $35,000 an acre.
