Yolo Airport like ‘Silicon Valley’ for ag industry

By From page A9 | March 17, 2013

Gary Pelfrey of Davis Flight Support said recently a seed company flew in on a Gulfstream IV with 13 people for 72 hours. His clients utilized 13 rooms at the Hallmark Inn for three nights, and spent money for four rental cars, meals, $600 on
catering from Nugget and $15,000 worth of fuel.

Pelfrey said that is an example of how his business and Yolo Airport becomes a portal into the community.
