North Dakota Statewide Aviation System Plan

The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission continues its efforts to enhance the aviation system in North Dakota, through the development of the 2014 North Dakota State Aviation System Plan (NDSASP) Update.  The plan has documented the state’s aviation needs, will help to guide funding decisions, and has helped to identify the future of the aviation system. 

The significant federal and state investment that has been made in both commercial and general aviation airports throughout the state must be maintained.  Consequently, an update to the NDASP has been initiated to develop a document that will provide appropriate guidance and recommendations to the NDAC for the management of the aviation system in North Dakota.

The following tasks have been completed as a part of this project:

  • Review the vision, mission, and goals of the system plan
  • Data collection, airport Classification, and forecasting
  • Evaluating benchmarks for the system plan
  • Approach assessment and obstruction mitigation
  • Recommendations based on findings
  • Updating system plan documents
