WEST CHESTER (July 16) – State Senator Andy Dinniman today announced that three airports in Chester County will receive more than $ 3.3 million in state and federal funding to improve safety and operations.

The funding, which comes through PennDOT’s aviation development program and the Federal Aviation Administration’s block grant program, will go to the following projects:Business jet

  • $2 million for the Chester County/G.O. Carlson Airport to remove obstructions and complete apron construction.

 

  • $1.2 million to the New Garden Flying Field to reconstruct and widen the runway.

 

  • $158,333 for Brandywine Airport to study the feasibility of acquiring a precision approach that helps increase access and safety during poor weather conditions.

“These funds will help improve the safety of our local, public-use airports, while boosting our regional economy and supporting our workforce,” Dinniman said.

The grants are part of an $18 million state and federal investment that will improve safety and operations at 35 airports throughout Pennsylvania and support more than 2,600 jobs statewide.

Public-use airports in the state are eligible for the PennDOT aviation development program. Airports eligible for the federal block grant program include: general aviation airports, designated reliever airports, and non-primary commercial service airports (those with fewer than 10,000 annual passengers) that are part of the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems.
