Findlay Airport Receives Grant For Improvement Project

The Findlay Airport will be breaking ground on a project this summer to reconstruct its north aircraft parking apron.

The reconstruction project will include a reinforced concrete parking hardstand to accommodate larger aircraft, improved drainage and clear pavement markings.

“The Findlay Airport is a great asset to our community and we’re very excited to continue to see it grow,” said Findlay Mayor Christina Muryn.



Mayor Muryn says the airport plays a pivotal role in the community by offering easy access to Findlay and on-demand cargo for local manufacturers, private charters, and corporate business travelers.

She said the airport currently has 25 based tenants and is maintaining a 100 percent occupancy rate.

The City of Findlay has received advance notice of a $1.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to fund the reconstruction of the north apron.

The project also includes two bid alternates to further rehabilitate the adjacent tie-down apron and T-hangar taxilane.

The total project cost is a little under $2.3 million and the local share will be just under $100,000.

The mayor says the terminal building will be updated in the coming years and they’re looking at other projects as well.
