Madison Airport Has Officially Changed its Name

FOR RELEASE ON JULY 21, 2016 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Madison Airport, located near Richmond, KY has changed its name to Central Kentucky Regional Airport. The FAA officially charted the change on Thursday, July 21st. This change has been made to recognize the airport’s changing status as a major economic engine in Central Kentucky. Recent improvements and additions to the runway, taxiways, parking ramps, and auto parking area have made it increasingly attractive as a destination to business professionals, Corporate travelers, and the general flying public. This, coupled with the expanded presence of the Eastern Kentucky University Aviation flight program, has established the airport as one of the busiest General Aviation airports in Central Kentucky with approximately 100 take-off and landings per day. The airport is located in the middle of 10 industrial areas within a half hour’s drive of the airport. These sites are located in Fayette, Estill, Jackson, Rockcastle, Garrard, and Madison Counties. The airport can easily be reached by auto at either exit 83 or exit 77 off I-75. The Eastern Kentucky University Aviation program continues to expand with over 130 students now in the flight program, and 15 single engine and twin engine aircraft in its fleet. This program is poised to double in the next few years as facility improvements are finished. The 30 additional based aircraft are used for personal as well as business use. Five local and regional businesses have their aircraft based at the airport. The airport maintains a waiting list for hangar space for aircraft that want to be based at the airport. The airport is currently engaged in a three-phase improvement plan, of which, the first phase has been completed. The next phase will include a terminal building, additional ramp space, and additional aircraft hangar space. The Airport Board is presently seeking fun
