BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - The Association of Village Council Presidents is working on a new funding plan to reopen its flight school in Bethel.

The association closed the school last year, citing high operating costs and diminished federal funding. The school originally opened in 2003.

AVCP president Myron Naneng tells KYUK (https://is.gd/oQnoQt) that reopening the school is part of an economic development strategy.

The association is pursuing a new plan for funding as a regional training center.

Naneng hopes to have funding in place to begin operations in early 2015.
