    "Marion is located in the west-central section of Alabama, off Highway 5. Marion is 75 miles from Birmingham and Montgomery, and 65 miles from Tuscaloosa".

    So check flights to BHM and MGM.

    We found flights to Birmingham were more reliable than those to Montgmery. Either way transport to and from the airports is more of a problem. I think MMI does sometimes run a shuttle to Birmingham for a fee.

    We used Birmingham every time.

    For shuttle info, get with Mr Reeves. You/ your cadet will meet him in August when they get there. They have a great system for getting the cadets to'from B'ham airport.

    DS is at MMI now. MMI runs a shuttle to and from Birmingham for holidays, breaks etc. for the cadets. We have flown into Birmingham and Montgomery from Boston by way of Charlotte and Atlanta. Personally we found the drive from Montgomery easier and a nicer ride than Birmingham when traveling ourselves. Car rental necessary, but less expensive than we are used to in the northeast USA. Best Wishes
