FAA Announces $20M in Control Tower Refurb

20 Small & Regional Airports tot See Improvements The FAA is awarding $20 million to the creation or refurbishment of 20 airport-owned traffic control towers across 17 states under the ‘Contract Tower Program’. The money comes from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, specifically earmarked to “smaller and regional airports to improve safety and support critical aviation operations such as commercial passenger flights, cargo flights, emergency services, agricultural aviation, and flight training.” The airports range from Bullhead International in Arizona, where the tower will gain better fire protection, comms equipment, security, mechanical, and interior enhancements along with ADA-compliant layouts.
