A new business has more planes landing at the airport.

Tanner Sotvik was given the opportunity to start a business at the Devils Lake Regional Airport, and he's pretty happy he did.

He's been busy ever since.

Sotvik is an airplane technician and about a year ago he was offered the opportunity to come to Devils Lake.

With help from the airport and Forward Devils Lake, planes from across the midwest are making their way to Devils Lake Aero Service to have their planes fixed, checked, and enhanced.

Sotvik says he has planes from Cando, Lakota, and even Crookston in his shop right now, and more waiting to get in.

"It's been really good, every bodies been willing to give me a try I guess and that's really what you need. Got to get your foot in the door somewhere," explains Sotvik.

Tanner is also licensed to work on Delta's planes.
