POV video: Small plane takeoff and landing at Eugene Airport

KVAL News caught a lift with Lane Aviation Academy for a story set to air #LiveOnKVAL June 3, 2015.

This video chronicles taking off, cruising and landing in a small plane at the Eugene Airport.

Steve Boulton, director of the flight school, said this activity gives the Eugene Airport a higher rating, which in turn helps attract commercial carriers to the airport.

Boulton said if the flight school wasn't there, the airport would look a little different.

"The funding and the staffing of the tower would significantly be reduced and there would be cuts in services, and then at the very least it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to attract new airlines in," he said.
