Danbury Airport Task Force Releases Final Report
The Danbury Municipal Airport sits on approximately 250 acres of property. The Aviation Commission, under the leadership of Chairman John Ashkar, along with Commissioners Baker, Lee, Omasta, Oppermann, Tamburri, and Zilinek oversee the standards for lease and/or use of the municipal airport, and the current and future planning of the field. The Commission also issues permits and works closely with the Airport Administrator.
We have received a federal grant to rehabilitate the hazard beacon locations numbers 5, 6, 8 and the rotating beacon that surround the airport. We have also received a federal grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for the Airport Master Plan Update which we anticipate starting in the Fall of 2013. The Airport Air Traffic Control Tower was funded this past June, 2013 until the end of September, 2013, and we anticipate that the Federal government will continue to fund it in the 2013/2014 budget cycle. We continue to seek Federal grants for capital improvement programs here at the Danbury Municipal Airport.
