NH general aviation airports to share in $4.1m FAA grant
Concord Municipal Airport, Pease International Airport in Portsmouth and Boire Field in Nashua are among the airports that will benefit from the funding, announced on Thursday by New Hampshire's congressional delegation.
"They submit their applications to us; we then take those applications, approve them, and the request the funding from FAA, and so now the funding will be arriving," said Tricia L. Schoenick Lambert, administrator of the Aeronautics Bureau. "This money is critical to the development and safe operation of New Hampshire's general aviation airports."
The smaller airports, open to the public for general aviation, are an important part of the state's transportation system, Lambert said. "These airports facilitate emergency response activities and promote business use, thereby strengthening the state's economy," she said.
