Glynn County Airport Commission to update masterplan

The Glynn County Airport Commission will host a public meeting Thursday to take public comments about proposed updates to its master plan.

The 1:30 p.m. meeting will be held in the second-floor conference room of the Brunswick Golden Isles Airport, 295 Aviation Parkway, Brunswick.

The proposed updates to the master plan call for several projects. A runway extension, construction of a new taxiway, terminal security upgrades and parking lot expansions are among the plans for the Brunswick airport. The master plan defines the likely needs of the airport for the period between 2015-2035.

In other business during the commission’s regular monthly meeting Tuesday, Michael Menon, the Brunswick airport’s operations and security manager, said he is in the early stages of a plan to bring a group of restored military planes for a static and formation display. The group, the North American Trainers Association, flies former military aircraft, including the P-51 Mustang, B-25 Mitchell and T-28 Trojan, according to its website. Melon said he hopes to host the event this winter, but cautioned “nothing is set in stone.”

Also Tuesday, commissioners reviewed the airports’ income statement, which showed more than $700,000 in revenue over budget for fiscal year 2016-2017.

Slightly less than 3,200 passengers boarded 85 flights at the Brunswick airport in July, down 4 percent from this month last year. There are 96 scheduled flights in September.
