Air Evac leaving Ennis

The Air Evac base at Ennis Municipal Airport shut down operations as of Friday.
Ricky Reed, program director for the now-closed Air Evac Base 74, said a low volume of flights led to the company’s upper management to pull the plug.
“We just weren’t doing the flights,” Reed said. “The company was pouring a lot more money into the base than it was making. I’m sure somebody up top was thinking they had to do this just to survive.
“It’s just part of the business,” Reed said.
