Jefferson City Airport Celebrates Re-Opening

Oct 27, 2015

The annual open house at Jefferson City Memorial Airport was delayed this year due to unfinished renovations, but the runways finally reopened this week.

The open house was held Saturday, and people of all ages came out to celebrate.  The Jefferson City chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, which consists of pilots, aircraft builders and aviation enthusiasts, hosted the event and provided a pancake breakfast. A handful of pilots volunteered to help out with providing free flights to kids. For many of these kids, it was their first time flying.

The City Council of Jefferson City unanimously approved six ordinances Monday that set the framework for $6.2 million in renovations to the city's airport.

The city will secure $6.1 million in funding for a runway and taxiway improvement project through the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission and will match 6 percent of the total cost, approximately $400 thousand, through sales tax revenues.
