Iowa Transportation Commission approves fiscal year 2012 State Aviation Program

July 12, 2011

AMES, Iowa – July 12, 2011 – The Iowa Transportation Commission today approved nearly $5.3 million for the fiscal year (FY) 2012 State Aviation Program, which includes several subprograms detailed below.  

The Airport Improvement Program (AIP) will fund nearly $3 million for aviation safety programs, and aviation planning and development programs. Projects funded through the AIP include: maintenance of aviation weather systems; runway marking; windsocks; emergency operational repairs at publicly owned airports; match for federal statewide planning studies; land-use planning; air service development; and wildlife mitigation at airports. AIP programs are funded with revenue from aircraft registration fees and aviation fuel taxes.

Aviation vertical infrastructure programs will provide approximately $2.3 million for projects at all eight commercial service airports and 11 general aviation airports throughout Iowa. These programs provide funding for the maintenance and development of airport facilities, such as terminal buildings, maintenance facilities and aviation hangars. Vertical infrastructure programs are funded through the Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure Fund (RIIF).

The State Aviation Program supplements local and federal funding sources, and seeks to maintain a safe and balanced statewide air transportation system.  For additional details on the FY 2012 State Aviation Program, see the tables below. Additional information regarding aviation in Iowa is available at www.iowadot.gov/aviation.
