Northway Communications will continue to maintenance navaids for Alexander Field.
A navaid is a device on the ground that airplanes can detect and fly into, as well as follow home. The contract will run approximately $6,500, which is considered common for these types of contracts.
“If we’re going to keep those navaids published as navaids we have to have all of these inspections.” said Airport commission member Jeremy Sickler.
