Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport Layout Plan
Through a master planning process, the City of Springfield is updating the Airport Layout Plan (ALP) for the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport. The ALP is a critical planning tool that depicts the existing airport facilities and planned development initiatives over the next 20 years. It is required by the Federal Aviation Administration and serves as a general blueprint for providing a safe and efficient airport that meets Springfield’s existing and forecasted aviation demand. A draft of the ALP depicting the preferred development options for the airport is available for public comment through April 17, 2020.
Please email any comments or concerns about this plan to email@example.com or mail to Seth Timmerman, 1251 West Blee Road, Springfield, Ohio 45502 by April 17, 2020.
'Flying Car' Research Comes to Springfield-Beckley Airport
SPRINGFIELD (Dec. 10, 2020) – Mayor Warren Copeland was on-hand for a ceremonial groundbreaking and ribbon-cutting for the Agility Prime Project at Springfield-Beckley Airport. The virtual event included remarks from officials with the the Air Force Research Laboratory, Dayton Development Coalition, JobsOhio, City of Springfield, BETA Technologies, and Joby Aviation.
The Air Force recently launched Agility Prime, a non-traditional program seeking to accelerate the commercial market for advanced air mobility aircraft and create a robust domestic industry and supply chain to support their development and production, according to an Air Force news release.
The simulators will allow pilots to gain experience in a controlled environment. Springfield’s airspace has been approved for testing beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) capabilities for unmanned aircraft, according to the release.
While Springfield’s airspace for testing of beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) capabilities supports unmanned aircraft, it also conducts pioneering work into how to integrate unmanned systems into National Airspace System, a critical aspect of developing air taxi technology, according to the Air Force news release.
“The Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport is proud to be part of the ecosystem of unmanned aerial systems research and testing in Ohio,” said City of Springfield’s Assistant City Manager Tom Franzen. “Home to the Ohio UAS Center and SkyVision, a BVLOS range operated in partnership with ARFL and state of Ohio, Springfield-Beckley is excited to support Joby Aviation and BETA Technologies in the placement of their advanced flight simulators at the airport. The airport’s proximity to Wright Patterson AFB and the Dayton region’s aerospace industry allows for easy access for the company’s customers and U.S. Air Force partners.”
The groundbreaking event in Springfield was held during the inaugural AFWERX Accelerate event happening virtually Dec. 7-11. To learn more about Accelerate, visit, www.afwerx.com, or watch the video.
