Southwest Oregon Regional Airport receives $500,000 to Support Air Service to Portland
On June 6th, 2019 the Oregon State Aviation Board awarded the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport a $500,000 Rural Oregon Aviation Relief (ROAR) grant, to assist in securing air service to Portland. ROAR grants are provided for projects that will assist commercial air service to rural Oregon.
The Airport is seeking to attract air service to Portland by providing financial and in kind service incentives. This $500,000 will bring us closer to that goal. Next month the Airport will be submitting a grant application to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Small Community Air Service Development Grant program, for $750,000. Discussions with the airlines for Portland service is ongoing. The Airport hopes to initiate service in the spring of 2020.
Additionally the airport has received financial and local incentives from Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, the Mill Casino, Sause Bros., the City of Coos Bay, the Port of Coos Bay, and the City of North Bend.
January 28, 2019
The Coos County Airport District received a letter from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regarding a number of obstacle/obstructions within the Part 77 Approach Surface Slope, located in the vicinity of the Airport.
The FAA considers the obstacles to be hazardous to safe flight operations in and out of the North Bend Airport and has required the Airport District institute corrective actions to mitigate the safety issues. The Southwest Oregon Regional Airport is required to top/shorten trees that are currently penetrating the Part 77 Approach Surface Slope. Local property owners, identified by the FAA, have been notified in writing.
If you believe that trees on your property may interfere with aircraft, please contact Robert Brittsan, Airport Administration at 541-756-8531×104.
