City Gets Safer Airport

An aging airport in one of the state’s fastest-growing cities had become unable to accommodate its travelers because of an inadequate runway not fit for jet traffic. Garver’s Aviation Team created a modern design to replace the previous airport that had serviced Conway, Arkansas, since the 1920s. Garver serviced all phases of the project, which included final airfield design, hangar and terminal building design, along with preliminary planning and design, and construction support services. It is the state’s first airport with LED PAPIs, and is equipped with a 7,000-foot runway with full instrument approaches and a full-length parallel taxiway. Garver also aided in property acquisition and bidding to reveal a location that proved more efficient for travelers and residents.
