OSCODA - Hoping to create hundreds of new jobs, state Rep. Joel
Sheltrown wants Oscoda's Kalitta Air first in line for funding under a
$1 billion jobs package nearing approval by the Legislature. 

The Ypsilanti-based jet freight carrier wants to expand its aircraft
repair and maintenance facility at the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base,
where it currently employs more than 500 people. 

"We've got plenty of work, it's just having the buildings to do it,"
said Don Nolan, general manager of Kalitta Air's Oscoda operations. 


And Pete Sanderlin, vice president of Kalitta Air, said the company
won't invest its own money in Wurtsmith facilities because contamination
issues prevent private ownership of property at the airport.
