Roadmaster Truck Driver Training School
The expected opening date for the new Roadmaster Truck Driver Training School is August 1, 2015. Roadmaster is occupying a 25 acre site leased from the Millington Industrial Development Board (MIDB). This company will train students to secure a Tennessee Commercial Driver's License.
Crew Training International
July 10, 2015 was the official opening for the Crew Training (CTI) International pilot training school at the Millington Municipal Airport. Their new home is owned by the Millington Airport Authority. The MIDB will sell over 3 acres to CTI for a site to construct student dormitories. The State of Tennessee awarded a grant to the City of Millington to extend utility service to the 3 acre housing site. The Delta Regional Authority has also awarded a grant to the City of Millington to improve a roadway adjacent to the housing site and new CTI location.
Airport Land Sale
The MIDB is working closely with the Millington Airport Authority on the sale of 57+ acres. The Airport Authority will purchase and bank the land for a potential airport runway expansion. The Millington IDB received the land from the United States of America in 1999 as part of the Base Realignment and Closure Commission process.
Small Community Air Service Development Grant
The MIDB is cooperating with the Millington Airport Authority in the submission of a Small Community Air Service Development Grant to the federal government. Numerous support letters were obtained to accompany the application. The grant would be used as an incentive to attract scheduled airline service to the Millington Municipal Airport. The Millington Jetport runway is 8,000 feet in length. It is the third longest in the State of Tennessee
