Cost Of Building An Airport

Tue May 02, 2006 2:42 am

Hello everyone,

I am looking for information on the costs of building an airstrip.

Does anyone have any ideas as to where I could look for this sort of info? I imagine there are construction costs of the runway, various zoning costs which depend on the country (lets take the US) and perhaps a bunch of governmental agencies to come out and inspect the runway to make sure that it is up to FAA standards.

Any idea where I can find out how much all this would cost?

Thanks in advance.
