A FEW GOOD AIRPORTS

Since 1988, FAA has worked with local governments, states and the DOD in converting 10 out of 36 airfields identified by DOD under the Base Realignment and Closure program to be closed or realigned. About one-third of these airfields are prime candidates to be operated as commercial service or transport airports, including a number with the potential to be operated as joint use airports. This article discusses the process of converting a military airfield, and describes 10 airport conversions in progress.
