Executive Air Gives Back To United Way

Posted: Updated:
It's no surprise that all the visitors in town for the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference are drumming up business, but one spot is especially busy.

The Municipal Airport in Bismarck sees on average four private planes per day, but between today and Thursday 40 aircrafts are expected to use the runway.

Executive Air says they have been preparing for this increased business for months, and they're also using this busy time to give back to the community.

"The United Way does so much in our community. It supports all the local charities, and we just want to be a part of that and give back to our community as best we can. We're giving $25 per aircraft that comes in and a penny a gallon for fuel that they buy," says Chief Operating Officer Paul Vetter.

Last year, Executive Air raised $1,300 for the United Way over the three day conference, and Vetter says they are expecting to raise a lot more since the conference has grown.
