Airport Improvement Projects

Most of the airport improvement projects that are eligible for the Federal Aviation Administration – Airport Improvement Program (FAA-AIP) funding are funded by FAA (90%), New Hampshire (NH) Department Of Transportation (5%), and the City of Lebanon (5%), with the City share being fully refunded by airport-generated Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) revenue.

Some projects that are FAA-PFC eligible are funded directly from airport-generated PFC revenue with the remainder funded by the airport operating budget. Lastly, certain revenue-producing projects are funded by City debt service paid by airport operating budget. Please contact the Airport at 603-448-8878 if you have questions or need further information. 

Current Airport Improvement Projects

  1. Airport Property Study (AIP-44)

    The City, Airport, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will determine what needs to be done to properly surplus the 4 airport-obligated parcels.

  2. Runway 7-25 Obstruction Removal Project

    This project is part of the obstruction / hazard removal project entailing removal of 34 acres of trees between Poverty Lane and Runway 7-25.

  3. Terminal Boiler & Air Conditioning

    The terminal air conditioning units were installed in 1980 and in recent years have not been reliable of energy efficient. In 2012, the airport received an energy audit through the Upper Valley/Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission, with improvement of the air conditioning units being a priority.
