Aspen Airport Looks to the Future
Officials have decided to bring the tony community gateway to full Group III Airport status by moving its 8,000 foot runway.
The development plan approved by the Pitkin County Board of Commissioners would have Aspen-Pitkin County Airport move its runway 80 feet to the right in this photo, and widen it from 100 feet to 150 feet in order to achieve full FAA Group III Airport design, and accommodate the next generation of regional commercial aircraft as well as ultra-long range business jets.
