Airport Construction Program

The Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission (Commission) assists with the development of a statewide system of airports, encourages aeronautical safety and development, and coordinates activities with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to develop a national system of civil aviation.

The Oklahoma Airport System Plan (OASP) was approved by the Commission in 1999 and is the longterm planning document used to identify the network of airports needed to serve the state. The OASP identifies airports by functional classification, service level, and design standard.

The Commission’s Airport Construction Program (ACP) programs federal and state funds regarding airport development that is consistent with the goals of the OASP. The ACP allows the Commission, FAA, and airport sponsors to anticipate airport funding needs and accommodate changes in project scope, cost, and schedule based on multi-year planning. Inclusion of a project in the ACP is an indication to the sponsor that the project is under consideration for future funding; however, it is NOT a commitment for future funding.

Justification is required for projects in the ACP and must be consistent with FAA and Commission Regulations, Policies and Procedures. Some projects listed in this document may not be implemented due to funding restrictions or lack of justification.

The ACP is based on anticipated funding levels that were determined from historic state and federal allocations for airport development in the State of Oklahoma. Once the actual funding levels are established, project implementation and funding will be adjusted.
