The General Aviation ramp at Eisenhower Airport is entering its second construction season undergoing a much-needed reconstruction and expansion project. Pearson Construction of Wichita is the General Contractor on the project, coordinating and managing 12 sub-contractors performing various activities. The project has finished its first phase of construction activity and is scheduled to be complete with full reconstruction by March 2024. Once complete, the GA Apron will double in size to allow more aircraft parking, safer movement on the apron by aircraft and safety/service vehicles, and prepare for future EPA requirements, all while removing/replacing pavement that is over 50 years old. This reconstruction will allow Airport staff to focus on maintenance of other areas on the airport. The project contract amount is $23,708,400.00 and is funded with a combination of AIP and Airport Revenue.
