OSU Airport 150 Sound Study Public Meeting at 7PM Date October 27, 2009
Location: Hangar 1, OSU Airport 


OSU Airport Improvement Program

The Ohio State University Airport is in the process of improving the Airport, by proposing a precision instrument approach to the west into the prevailing winds on the north runway; increasing the length of the North runway to 6000 feet, and building hangars.  The existing South runway is 5000 ft long.

University Airport officials are beginning an FAA part 150 Noise evaluation to be followed by an Environmental  Assessment.  www.osuairportpart150.com

The airport administration asked Airport Users what were the most needed improvements at the airport:

The 3 main Responses were:
1. A Precision Landing System for landing to the West
2. A 20% longer Runway Length
3. More Aircraft Hangars

These responses were incorporated into the 1990 OSU Don Scott Master Plan and received wide support and the approval of the Board of Trustees of the Ohio State University.
