Vero Beach Regional Airport is preparing a new master plan — a tool to establish a vision for the airport’s development and operational sustainability over the next 20 years. The plan will be prepared following Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards and will incorporate input from the airport’s users and the community.During the 24-month study, multiple sources of data will be used and analyzed, covering the physical, operational, environmental and financial aspects of the airport. It should be noted the master plan process will not consider restrictions on airport hours of operation and the types of aeronautical activities that occur at the airport, aircraft traffic patterns, or aircraft arrival and departure paths. The FAA retains regulatory authority over these elements of airport operations. Click here for more information about the new master plan.
Economic Impact Study
Florida’s over 125 public-use airports are economic engines for the state, representing some of the largest aviation facilities in the world and providing critical
transportation connections for their local communities. By supporting jobs both on- and off- airport property, Florida’s airports support the infrastructure necessary
for important activities such as manufacturing, logistics, tourism, and emergency response. In 2021, Florida welcomed over 43 million out-of-state visitors through its commercial service airports and over 4.6 million visitors through its general aviation airports. Over 3,500 businesses operate at Florida’s airports and their 161,000 direct
employees create substantial economic impacts. To help quantify and communicate these immense contributions, the FDOT Aviation Office initiated the development of the 2022 Florida Aviation Economic Impact Study. Click here for more information.
