After two years of planning, the North Peace Airport unveiled its commercial development plan this morning. The self-funded project expects to add extra helicopter space, and a fairly new concept called hanger homes. Managing Director Todd Tripp says the homes will be available for buisness and private use.

Over the next couple of years, further development will follow. Tripp says he wants to keep the development green.
