Ken Jernstedt Airfield Airport Master Plan – 2009
Please note: The 2016 Airport Master Plan is currently in draft review. This article describes the 2009 Master Plan.
The Port of Hood River, in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Aviation (ODA), is updating the Airport Master Plan (ALP) Report for Ken Jernstedt Airfield (hereafter referred to as “the Airport”). The purpose of the study is to define the current, short-term and long-term needs of the airport. This Airport Master Plan Report replaces the Hood River Airport Master Plan 1990-2010 (W&H Pacific, 1993) and updates the Ken Jernstedt Airfield Airport Layout Plan Update 2004-2024 (Century West Engineering, 2005). The basis of these two reports are the Hood River Airport Master Plan Report (Century West Engineering, 1977), which the Port of Hood River developed after Hood River County transferred airport ownership to the Port in 1976. This Airport Master Plan Report replaces the Hood River Airport Master Plan completed in 1990 (Hood River Airport Master Plan 1990-2010, W&H Pacific, 1993). Prior master plan recommendations have been reviewed and revised as necessary, to reflect current conditions and any changes in activity, utilization, or facility development that may affect future demand for aviation facilities.
Funding for the ALP project was provided through a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program grant (90 %) and local match (10 %) from the Port of Hood River. Overall project coordination is being provided by the Oregon Department of Aviation through administration of a multiple airport layout plan grant.
