Kissimmee Gateway Airport Gets $1 Million Grant for New Tower

Control Tower Barely Half of the Height it Should be by Modern Standards, Necessitating Full Fix Building on the good news of a recent FAA grant, Kissimmee Florida’s local airport has publicized their incoming control tower, which will be (hopefully) completed with the $1 million in federal funding. Kissimmee Gateway Airport has been in need of a new tower, according to local Congressional Rep Darren Soto. He helped draw attention to the Kissimmee tower earlier this year, writing directly to FAA Administrator Micheal Whitaker. Soto was quite pleased to see the plans go through, since the older ATC tower doesn’t meet FAA performance criteria. It stands at a very unimpressive height, resulting in a controller-eye level of only 43 feet above ground level.
