Steve: I don't know the answer to the first question and I don't want to guess other than somewhere around $500k. Maybe the POA can answer. I think the POA website www.fly52.org has the data.

But to the second question, it's being funded through POA (Property Owners Association) member assessments over five years based on square footage owned. I own one T-Hangar and the assessment is not a burden and well worth it for the benefit received.

Default Price Tag

Chris,

The reason for the question, here at SC99 which is our airpark, we have a 35 X 3000 paved runway. Been in place for 17 plus years with lots of crack sealing and asphalt spray stuff. At some point we are going to have to resurface with at least another 1.5 inches of new asphalt and was curious in a ball park comparison of pricing. Our guesstimates are 200K for just resurfacing. That is nothing like your total rebuild of the runway.

Thanks for the info.

$50K engineering/plans by http://www.hwlochner.com/services_aviation-hexagon.html
$75K for drainage improvements prior to runway constructions (200+ trailers of silt trucked off) https://dougreeves.smugmug.com/52F-A...-Improvements/
$659K for new runway with Portland cement mixed in down to 12 inches, asphalt top and paint. Self-funded by less than 30 property owners investing $25K each for a 5% return paid back over 6 years. No banks were involved, other than to hold the money. Work did not begin until all the money was deposited (that's what was voted on by a majority of the property owners a year and a half ago). Yearly assessments based on hangar square footage services the debt. In all probability the runway will be paid off in 5 years, not 6.

The comment was made that the packed dirt in place now is BETTER than the old runway. Not a joke!

For those that have roots at 52F do you know if there is lot space that can be purchased at the airport in which to construct a new hangar? With updates to revitalize the airport this has to be somewhat of a common question.

Default Airnav

airnav still has this as being open for business. Maybe you might want to inform airnav of the closure and new width?

Default FAA shows it NOTAM'd closed....

The FAA says it's closed, and that's the source all the other sites like airnav pull from.

I've seen several mentions of the airport as "Aero Valley" vs NWR. Has there been a formal name change yet?

That's actually less than I would have thought.

According to the interwebs of things the name change was FROM Aero Valley TO Northwest Regional around 1988.

Buy for many, Redbird will always be Redbird, Denton will never be Enterprise, and McKinney will never be National.

Hey Doug, I looked at both sites and can't find the petition; is it hidden or am I blind? I wanna sign it! Ditch the silly Hyde era NW Reg name; it's Aero Valley to me.
