The Davidson County Airport Authority and the North Carolina Division of Aviation unveiled its proposed airport layout plan at the Richard Childress Hangar at the Davidson County Airport on Monday.

“We had a meeting in June we invited community members, business owners, to get their ideas and input on what should or should not be included in this plan,” Gray said. “More hanger was up there, and still is. We have a waiting list of 47 pilots waiting for hangar space.”

Michael Player, project engineer for Talbert, Bright & Ellington, said the proposed 20-year plan, includes the addition of eight new corporate hangars, a 16-unit T-hangar, and expansion of the current terminal. The plan also takes into consideration of additional corporate and t-hangars in the future.

“The one thing I want people to know is this is an economic connector to the county’s economy,” Gray said. “We are here to serve leisure craft, as well as aircraft for business and industry; more hangers bring in more money.”
