Prescott Airport Construction Update, January 2012

Happy New Year!

As the Airport staff has been discussing over the past several months, a large construction project is getting ready to begin at the Prescott Airport. During the month of November and December, Airport staff held a series of public briefings to spread the word to the aviation community about the anticipated construction and impacts. During this presentation, Airport staff stated that we would be working to provide updated information via the Airport website for the duration of the project to help improve communication with the airport community.

I am pleased to announce that we have been able to get the website reconfigured and now you may find the most current information for this project the Airport Planning and Development webpage at by clicking on the “Upcoming & Current Construction” expandable tab. You can also get to this expandable tab from our pilot briefing page at by clicking the link. As we move into the future, we will attempt to use this area for posting all of our future construction projects.

Originally we had anticipated construction activities to begin during the middle of January, however due to a delay in the award of the construction contracts we are now anticipating construction to begin sometime around the end of February. We will strive to keep this information current and updated as the project gets started and progresses.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to contact me at the information listed below.

Happy Flying!
