This question has been asked since the early 1970s. The project is in the current JaxEx Master Plan and if implemented would increase the economic impact of the airport, increase the margin of safety for operations at the airport and allow larger corporate business jets to use the airport. Given community and city opposition to the project, JAA is not pursuing the project at this time. Until such time as community and city leaders and JAA can come together to reach an agreement that locks in the future of the airport, JAA’s position is that it will work on other projects that provide economic benefits to the city and financial return to JAA. In the absence of a long term agreement, the Board of Directors of JAA could change this position at any time.
