SUMMARY:

                                          

Pensacola International Airport is eligible to receive annual grants in aid from the Federal Aviation Administration to help cover the costs of certain safety, security, or capacity projects needed for the ongoing operation and development of the facility.  These grants, offered under the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP), are based on passenger enplanements, and can often cover up to 90% of project expenses.

 

As part of the annual budget process, Airport Staff works with FAA personnel to identify projects that qualify for AIP reimbursement, and submits pre-applications and applications to the FAA accordingly.  For this year, Airport Staff identified five items for reimbursement.  These were: 1) Replacement of Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Vehicle No. 112; 2) Replacement of Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Vehicle No. 111; 3) Design services for a general aviation Customs and Border Protection facility; 4) Design services for airfield stormwater modifications; and 5) Purchase of property located at 3040 New Hope Road.

 

In response to the application filed by Airport Staff, the FAA has offered a grant in the amount of $2,075,525.
