AIRPORT MASTER PLAN

The Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority is updating its master plan.  

An airport’s master plan guides the airport’s development and operational sustainability, and covers 5, 10 and 20-year horizons.  Developing a master plan is a structured process that seeks to evaluate the airport’s future growth and land development needs.  

The plan will result in two key documents:  a Master Plan Report, and an Airport Layout Plan (ALP), which is a drawing that depicts the airport’s future property plans.  

A master plan process is guided by Federal Aviation Administration standards, and airports typically update their master plans approximately every 10 years.  The last update to AVL’s master plan was in 2013.
