The Port of Port Angeles held a public information open-house on the first stage of the William R. Fairchild International Airport master plan update on January 21, 2016.

The Clallam County community is invited to provide feedback on the process.  Citizens can click on Community Voice and select the “Airport Master Plan Feedback” initiative.  Or they can click on the public comment link below and email, mail or deliver the completed form to:  Airport Manager, Port of Port Angeles, P.O.

As required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the master plan update will look to the short-term of five years, mid-term of ten years and long-term of twenty years to assess the airport’s operations, safety, development needs and capital facilities requirements.

A study advisory committee, which represents a broad range of airport stakeholders, is working with the consultants on the update. Committee members represent the Federal Aviation Administration, Port of Port Angeles, City of Port Angeles, Airport Fixed Based Operators, Aircraft owners and others.
