Chester County Airports Land $3.3M For Upgrades


Safety and expansion projects at three Chester County airports have been cleared for takeoff by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Amounts awarded included $2 million for Chester County/G.O. Carlson Airport to clear obstructions and finish constructing an apron, $1.2 million for New Garden Flying Field to rebuild a wider runway, and more than $150,000 for Brandywine Airport to conduct a feasibility study for the addition of a precision approach system to help assist pilots land their aircraft in poor weather.

“These funds will help improve the safety of our local, public-use airports while boosting our regional economy and supporting our workforce,” state Sen. Andy Dinniman said in a Daily Local News report.
