Airport Planning

The Central Wisconsin Airport completed a Master Plan in 2019 to ensure short, medium, and long-term needs of the airport are met.  The key planning areas studied included:  Runway intersection, passenger terminal concourse, general aviation facilities, and snow removal equipment storage and maintenance facilities.  The planning effort included multiple community outreach meetings, Technical Advisory Committee meetings, and presentations to the Central Wisconsin Joint Airport Board.  The end result included an FAA approved Airport Layout Plan. 


The Master Plan documents, Airport Layout Plan, and FAA approvals can be viewed in the links below.

CWA Rules & Regulations
