Re: EAS program extended for another 5 years.

The EAS program is more then just getting air service to remote communities, which is essential for places like PIR, DIK, PDT, LWB, IWD, IWT, BJI, MSL, to name a few. Obviously these places, as well as Alaska, are dependent on air service because they are very isolated from the rest of their states/...
