PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An airline selected by Pierre officials to provide passenger service to the city says it has named a new CEO to in an effort to answer the concerns of federal regulators.

Aerodynamics Inc. says that F. Darrel Richardson will lead the regional airline in place of current CEO Scott Beale.

The Capital Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1z0hSgR ) the U.S. Department of Transportation announced last week it planned to deny the company’s application for service. The agency says its decision comes in light of the legal and financial issues surrounding Beale.

Pierre officials in November recommended Aerodynamics to provide flights through the Essential Air Service federal subsidy program.

Vice president Mickey Bowman says Aerodynamics has two weeks from Jan. 22 to respond to the department’s denial.
