From Paine Field, travelers are able to reach every major west coast city with easy connections to anywhere in the world."The success of Paine Field is the realization of years of hard work and more than a decade of commitment by Propeller to the idea of privately developing a commercial airport in a major metro area with a hub that is at capacity," said Brett Smith, CEO of Propeller.
