Self-Serve Fuel Pricing, Runway Improvements Cited
A new self-service Avgas fueling facility was officially opened for business November 20 at Tallahassee Regional Airport (KTLH) in the Florida panhandle. Through a partnership with Million Air, general aviation customers will have access to a cost saving alternative to the full-service fueling option. Priced at $1.15 per gallon lower than the full-service fueling option, the self-service fuel pricing is competitive with other airports in the region, airport officials said.
Additionally, the first phase of the airport’s $43 million dollar construction project to enhance the safety and operational capacity of its runways is complete. This initial construction phase lengthened the north/south runway from 6,070 feet to 7,000 feet, rehabilitated critical spans of airfield pavement and upgraded the runway’s instrument landing system with an enhanced, state-of-the-art, all-weather landing capability.
The second phase of the project is scheduled to begin in late 2013 and will include the total reconstruction of the east/west runway. The project is primarily funded by the Federal Aviation Administration at 95 percent with the remaining 5 percent funded by the Florida Department of Transportation and airport capital funding.
“The opening of our newly extended and rehabilitated runway combined with the availability of an AvGas self-service fueling facility serve to underscore the commitment that TLH has to its general aviation community,” said Sunil Harman, director of Aviation.
The airport held a ribbon cutting and grand opening on Tuesday, November 20. “These milestones are proof positive of the airport’s continued commitment to make TLH this region’s airport of choice,” said Commissioner Gil Ziffer, lead commissioner on airport issues.
