Today, many general aviation airports are not benefiting from federal Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants even though they are entitled to them.

This is regrettable because general aviation airports are a vital transportation resource for a community. general aviation airports currently provide an economic boost to the surrounding area, enable critical emergency medical, law enforcement and disaster relief services, and offer an alternative to business travel.

In the future, general aviation airports will play an increasingly pivotal role in the U.S air transportation system as emerging technologies in aviation and research investments through NASA enable on-demand, point-to-point, affordable air transportation between communities served by over 5,000 airports throughout the nation.

In spite of their positive contributions, general aviation airports lack funding for necessary capital improvements.

Given our passion for aviation, saving airports, and enabling the air transportation system of the future, Ford Aviation Consultants are dedicated to helping general aviation airports receive AIP grants that will enable them to grow and prosper.

If AIP funds are not utilized, there is a real possibility that Congress will not re-authorize these programs.
Why leave money on the table?
