Kestrel Aircraft is abandoning plans to set up the headquarters and new production plant for its K-350 single-engine turboprop in Brunswick Landing, Maine. Yesterday, the company announced a $118 million deal to locate in Superior, Wisc., on land adjacent to Richard I. Bong Airport and begin construction in June. The agreement is being financed by a variety of grants, low-interest loans and tax credits from the city of Superior, Douglas County and the state of Wisconsin. The majority of the funding is coming from the state, and the deal is viewed as a political plus for Wisconsin Gov.
