Brunswick, ME Executive Airport Receives $6.2 Million FAA Grant

Half The Money Will Go Towards The construction Of A New GA Hangar

U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), the Chair of the Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee, announced today that Brunswick Executive Airport (KBXM) will receive a total of $6,215,820 for infrastructure improvements.  The funding was awarded through the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program, which sets aside funding for the Military Airport Program (MAP).

“Brunswick Executive Airport is home to multiple aviation and aerospace companies and has been a major catalyst for the redevelopment of Brunswick Naval Air Station,” said Senator Collins.  “In addition to improving safety and making important infrastructure upgrades, this investment will help the airport continue to attract businesses and good-paying jobs to the region.”

The funding will be awarded as follows:

  • $3,636,800 for the construction of a new hangar to accommodate general aviation aircraft;
  • $1,029,445 to install perimeter fencing;
  • $330,255 to repair utilities; and
  • $1,219,320 to improve airport drainage

MAP funding is awarded to civil sponsors of military airfields for the development of aviation facilities for the public. This program also assists new sponsors in converting former military airfields to public use to add system capacity and reduce congestion at existing airports experiencing significant delays.  In addition, MAP provides financial assistance to the civilian sponsors who are converting, or have already converted, military airfields to civilian or joint military/civilian use.
