Airport Development & Planning


Auburn Tenants and Stakeholders can look forward to a new extension on Runway 16/34 that brings our dimensions up from 3,400' x 75' to 3,841' x 75'. This project is slated to begin Spring of 2020 and hopes to cater to more mid sized Turbo Prop Aircraft (Pilatus PC-12s) as well as some smaller corporate jets (Citation Mustangs).

Airport Layout Plan (ALP)

Auburn's ALP as shown in the 2015 Airport Master Plan

The Airport Layout Plan is a graphic or series of graphics and diagrams that accompany an airport's Master Planning document to show both current and planned facilities at an airport. The current displayed Layout Plan came with the 2015 Airport Master Plan and is a good means of visually showing the most up to date plans for Dick Scobee Field.
