Danbury, CT 06810
The Danbury Municipal Airport sits on approximately 250 acres of property. The Aviation Commission, under the leadership of Chairman John Ashkar, along with Commissioners Baker, Lee, Omasta, Oppermann, Tamburri, and Zilinek oversee the standards for lease and/or use of the municipal airport, and the current and future planning of the field. The Commission also issues permits and works closely with the Airport Administrator.
We have received a federal grant to rehabilitate the hazard beacon locations numbers 5, 6, 8 and the rotating beacon that surround the airport which should be completed in the summer of 2014. We have also received a federal grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for the Airport Master Plan Update which has started this past Fall of 2013.The Airport has applied for a FAA grant for a new plow truck and we anticipate that we should receive the grant in July 2014. Once the grant is signed we can expect the vehicle around October 2014 in time for snow removal. We continue to seek federal grants for capital improvement programs here at the Danbury Municipal Airport.
