Dinniman Announces $1.1 Million in Funding for Regional Airports
WEST CHESTER (December 7, 2018) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that two airports in Chester County will receive more than $1.1 million in total state grant funding for upgrades and improvements.
“These funds will help improve the safety of our local, public-use airports while boosting our regional economy and supporting our workforce,” Dinniman said.
- $1 million for the Chester County/G.O. Carlson Airport for the construction of new hangar site development infrastructure.
- $18,750 for the Chester County/G.O. Carlson Airport to install an airport communications link between aircraft and air traffic control.
- $150,000 for Brandywine Regional Airport for the design of new hangar site infrastructure.
The Chester County projects come as part of more than $6 million in state investments allocated to twenty-six airports across the Commonwealth. Included in the grants is $2.2 million in state funding from PennDOT’s Aviation Development Program, which comes from the state’s jet fuel tax, and $4 million from the Multimodal fund (Act 89 of 2013).
