On June 5, members of the Governor-appointed Aviation Planning Council will meet to continue work on the final phase of the Long-Term Air Transportation Study (LATS), and you are welcome to attend.
The meeting will take place at the Ramada Spokane Airport, 8909 West Airport Drive, Spokane from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
During the meeting, the Council will discuss proposed statewide aviation policies and adopt a set of draft policies for upcoming public review. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
The Aviation Planning Council’s purpose is to use LATS Phases I and II findings, and include public input, to determine:
– How best to meet commercial and general aviation capacity needs.
– Which regions of the state are in need of improvement regarding the matching of existing, or projected, airport facilities and the long-range capacity needs at airports within the region expected to reach capacity before 2030.
– Recommendations regarding the placement of future commercial or general aviation facilities to meet the need for improved aviation planning in the region.
