Akron Airport has been awarded $304,611 in Federal Aviation Administration grants to purchase two hangars.
The grants, among 15 totaling $7,793,367 awarded in the state, were announced Wednesday by U.S. Sens. Charles E. Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton, both D-N.Y.
"These airports welcome travelers to New York each year, and these improvements are important for strengthening the local economy," Schumer said.
"Akron Airport is an integral part of the local economy and it is important that we do everything we can to support it," Clinton added.
