The airport management is constantly striving to ensure the runways, airport grounds, hangars and airport equipment are in excellent condition to ensure aviation safety, as well as to maintain the high quality standards that our tenants and visitors have come to expect of a modern general aviation airport.
In 2010, one of the maintenance improvements we’ve completed is the redesign of several security gates in order to align with the FAA Great Lakes Runway Safety Action Team recommendations, as well as to ensure the security of our tenants’ property within the airport grounds. We recognize that our tenants have made a major investment in their aircraft and hangars, and we take the responsibility for protecting these investments very seriously.
Other major projects that are planned for the next several years include:
- Construction of a snow removal equipment (SRE) building to protect the equipment from our harsh Wisconsin winters
- Relocate localizer antenna in preparation for Runway 10/28 reconstruction
- Reconstruct and light taxiways C, D, and F
- Rehabilitate Runway 10/28
- Safety area improvements on the ends of Runway 10/28 to comply with FAA requirements for standardized safety area dimensions
- Reconstruct south hangar apron
- Expand terminal ramp apron
Of course, these projects are subject to change, and we will keep you informed if this occurs. Airport management is also planning the replacement of our T-hangar buildings over the next few years, but the timing and details for these plans has not yet been confirmed.
Although we check regularly for maintenance issues such as broken taxiway lights and pavement problems, we recognize that tenants may notice something before we do, and we welcome you to contact us if you see something that requires attention. To notify us of an issue on the airfield, or to request maintenance on a T-hangar, please complete this Maintenance Request Form.
