Taxi Charlie and Apron 1 Expansion
In an effort to pave the way for future growth and expansion, a new Taxiway Charlie was completed in July of 2017.
The new taxiway is located north of the previous Charlie location, and permits the long-term growth of Apron 1 and the Air Terminal Building.
This new taxiway greatly improves overall airport functionality by connecting the existing General Aviation tenants and Apron 4 General Aviation parking to the runway system.
Construction of a new section of Apron 1 created space for four additional aircraft parking stands. These stands are utilized for overnight aircraft parking, additional parking during peak periods, and daily cargo operations.
In addition, re-construction of Apron 3 saw several important upgrades made, including repaving and improved lighting.
Apron 5 was also completed, creating new airside lease lots for future hangar buildings. Apron 5 presents the first new real estate available for airside uses in many decades at YQR.
New Cul-De-Sac Project
In 2018 RAA constructed a new cul-de-sac that will serve three new lots in the Taxi Charlie new development area.
The cul-de-sac project included a new paved road, new airfield fencing, underground sewer and water, new fire hydrants, street lighting and new shallow utilities (gas, power, tel, cable) to serve development lots in this area.
The first lot in this area is leased and the tenant’s building is under construction.
