JACKSON, KY – (May 22, 2005) - New signs are now in place at Julian Carroll Airport in Breathitt County and at airports across Kentucky. The new signs, which feature the "Unbridled Spirit" logo, "have a very nice, upbeat appearance," said Commissioner of Aviation Paul Steely. "They send the right message to all tourists and all companies looking to do business in Kentucky."

Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Department of Aviation distributed the signs to a number of airport representatives from across the state at the conclusion of the Kentucky Aviation Conference in Frankfort, Sept. 21-23.

"These new signs are a striking symbol of Kentucky’s vision for economic growth and overall quality of life everywhere in the Commonwealth," said Acting Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bill Nighbert. "Aviation plays a crucial role in that vision and the governor is committed to utilizing our aviation resources to recruit and maintain quality businesses."
