Small Planes with Big Plans
Langan’s Engineering and Environmental Services Support Expansions at Regional Airports
Kelly McCormick’s first steps in the aviation world were in the woods and wetlands surrounding the Morristown Airport in 2002. That particular project – delineating wetlands and preparing plans to secure natural resources permits to expand the airport – continues today.
In fact, expansions at regional airports are taking off all over the country. There are 3,500 regional airports/general aviation sites, and many of them are making significant changes to the operations and real estate footprint, in large part because of COVID-19’s effect on the aviation industry.
“Despite the pandemic, airports of all sizes are making major capital improvements,” said McCormick, Senior Project Manager in Langan’s New Jersey headquarters. “In the regional aviation space, air traffic is projected to pick up as an alternative to personal and business travel, which means upgrades on both air and landside facilities.”
In addition to the Morristown Airport, Langan’s team has been a trusted consultant on multiple projects at Teterboro Airport for more than 20 years. The team has provided our full suite of services, with a focus on natural resources, stormwater and floodplain management, geotechnical challenges, and surveying for both the airport owners and private developers.
