The Asheville Regional Airport last completed an airport master plan study in July, 2001. Soon after, changes in the aviation industry resulting from the events of 9/11 rendered that plan somewhat obsolete. Although a terminal area plan was completed in 2005 as an interim measure, the airport has now undertaken a new airport master plan study. Delta Airport Consultants was selected to conduct this 18 month study, which commenced in September, 2011.
The Asheville Regional Airport Authority has more than 1,000 acres of land utilized for aviation and non-aviation development. The airport has land to lease for hangar construction, aircraft maintenance facilities and other commercial aviation uses. Land is also currently available for non-aviation commercial development in the rapidly growing area of Airport Road (NC 280). In addition, Airport Terminal space is available for appropriate commercial operations.
The Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority has established Airport Development Guidelines which insure a minimum standard of consistency in the design and construction of new improvements on the Asheville Regional Airport, and contribute to the overall aesthetic quality of the airport facilities. They also address modifications to existing airport facilities for their adherence to current airport design practices. All development and construction projects are required to adhere to these guidelines.
