An Airline?

It turns out that the "high tech start-up" that Escambia County is giving all of the tax breaks to is Festival Airlines, a vacation only air carrier.

I assume that means it is a charter airline, and airlines haven't been doing that well lately. I hope they succeed, but it is definitely a high-risk venture and this doesn't make me any happier about the tax breaks.

If you are going to give tax breaks, how about to local entrepreneurs for their first year?
