Huntsville International Airport (IATA: HSV) in Alabama, USA has completed the update of its new Master Plan. An August 26 statement from the airport said that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has accepted the document so the process is now complete.

The statement said that representatives from the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority and the project team, led by Michael Baker International, had spent months engaging with community leaders, business owners, and residents to encourage them to share their vision of the airport’s future.

It noted that the plan’s goals included:

  • Providing a graphic representation of existing airport features, future airport development and anticipated land use.
  • Establishing a realistic schedule for implementation of the proposed development
  • Identify a realistic financial plan to support the development.
  • Validating the plan technically and procedurally through investigation of concepts and alternatives on technical, economic, and environmental grounds.
  • Preparing and presenting a plan to the public that adequately addresses all relevant issues and satisfies local, state, and federal regulations.
  • Establishing a framework for a continuous planning process.

The airport’s CEO, Rick Tucker, commented: “Huntsville International Airport team members, regional leaders, local business owners, and residents in our community worked in tandem discussing and developing this long-range vision for the airport. “This was a collective effort from many individuals that both care about the airport and understand that Huntsville’s economic future is tied to our airport’s success.”
