As the last commercial airline prepares to depart Arizona's Prescott Airport, city officials are indicating they will downgrade the airport's TSA classification to save on security costs. As a general aviation airport, Prescott would require only about 100 security badges -- compared with 1,500 as a commercial airport -- saving 35 hours a week of administrative time. "With Horizon [Air] leaving, it changes the whole complexion of how the airport will function," says Mayor Marlin Kuykendall. "Our needs for the massive security will diminish."
