Airports Getting A Piece Of DOD Pie
The FAA Friday selected
three additional airports to participate in the Military Airport
Program (MAP). They are Kalaeloa Airport, Oahu (HI); Southern
California Logistics Airport, Victorville (CA); and Castle Airport,
The MAP, which is funded through the FAA's Airport Improvement
Program (AIP), provides financial assistance for up to five years
to the civilian sponsor of military airfields being converted to,
or that have been converted to, civilian or joint-use
airfields. A total of 15 airports may participate in the
program, including one general aviation airport.
"By converting military airfields to civilian use in or near
major metropolitan areas the MAP enhances airport system capacity
and reduces flight delays at relatively low cost," said FAA
Administrator Marion C. Blakey.
Details on the airports selected are listed
Kalaeloa Airport, the
former Naval Air Station Barbers Point (HI), is a reliever airport
for Honolulu International. This airport is designated for
the first time for a five-year term. Funds will be used for
airfield, utility and hangar work to allow this airport to provide
significant relief to Honolulu International.
- Southern California Logistics Airport, Victorville (CA), is
re-designated for a two-year term to construct a fuel farm.
- Castle Airport, Atwater (CA), is the general aviation
designation for the Military Airport Program and is designated for
the first time for one year. Funds will be used to improve
utilities, rehabilitate hangars and improve roads.
MAP funds may be used for projects not generally funded by AIP
that aid in the conversion process for civilian use. These projects
include building or rehabilitating surface parking lots, fuel
farms, hangars, utility systems, access roads and cargo
