Governor Pastika is increasingly serious about establishing an airport in Bali's northern regency of Buleleng. Radar Bali reports that On March 8, 2009, the Governor paid a visit to the Letkol Wisnu Airport in Buleleng.

While it is unclear if the regional landing strip will eventually be used for commercial aviation, the visit by governor Pastika and members of his senior staff has further fueled speculations that bigger plans are in store for the small strip now used only by private aviation and a recently established flight school.

The Governor's spokesman, Putu Suardika, confirmed the visit to the airport by his boss who wanted to see first-hand conditions at the aerodrome and obtain an understanding of problems being encountered in obtaining adjoining parcels of land to permit expansion. Efforts to acquires surrounding parcels of land at the airport are at an impasse due to an inability to agree an acceptable price with the current landowners.

The regional government in Buleleng is also concerned that the operational costs of the Letkol Wisnu Airport will represent too great a burden for local government, prompting the Buleleng administration to seek financial support from the provincial government.

The Governor, who originally hails from the Buleleng region, also used his one-day tour of the area to visit the Agricultural Research Center (Balai Pengembangan Teknologi Pertanian) in Saggalangit, Buleleng. The governor was reportedly most impressed by the Center's goat husbandry project deemed to be very appropriate to conditions in Bali. The Center has found economical applications for not only the goat meat, but also for the animals' milk and biological waste.
