Airport Projects


This fall, Concord-Padgett Regional Airport will be removing a large section of trees on the east side of the airport to eliminate obstruction and meet the required 1,000 foot clearance standard the FAA has regarding the airport automated weather station to ensure its reliability in providing accurate weather condition information for pilots using the airport.  

There will also be a small section of trees removed on the northwest corner of the airport to improve the visibility for the airport control tower in viewing aircraft on taxiway "G". 

The project is expected to take 45 days to complete.



Airport LED Lighting Project

Beginning spring of 2021, Concord-Padgett Regional Airport is changing out all our traditional lighting fixtures and bulbs with LEDs. In all, more than 20 buildings will be changed out.

Tenants will see a brighter evironment around their facilities and the airport will see lower electricity costs and be more environmentally friendly and self-sustaining. 


Hangar Flooring Project

The Concord-Padgett Regional Airport is restoring the seal coating on the floors of some of our community aircraft storage hangars. Tenants with aircraft will notice a big difference in the look and brightness in these hangars.
