CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

After a two-year probe, a federal administrator is calling for the dismissal of a complaint against Chattanooga Airport filed by a company which charged that Lovell Field officials improperly used grant money toward the startup of a rival service.

The finding by a Federal Aviation Administration official said the airport did not violate federal law or grant obligations when it built a new general aviation center on the west side of the main runway, as competitor TAC Air had charged.

Airport spokesman Albert Waterhouse said officials always believed they were in full compliance with the FAA and the report affirms that assertion.

"Our goal was to simply create a competitive environment for all users of the airport, which in turn creates a tremendous economic impact for the city and region," he said in a statement.
