Airport Master Plan

A master plan has been initiated for CHD to provide proper guidance for existing and future development, which will satisfy aviation demands while maintaining compatibility with the surrounding environment and community. Specific master plan objectives for Chandler Municipal Airport are:

  • Maintain and ensure safety and security for the airport.
  • Plan for phased, incremental development that meets foreseeable aviation demand and maintains flexibility for change.
  • Produce Airport Layout Plan (ALP) drawings consistent with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards that can be utilized in determining grant eligibility and funding.

Open House #1 | Complete

The City of Chandler is currently developing an Airport Master Plan for Chandler Municipal Airport. As part of the study process, the City will hold three open house meetings to provide an opportunity to engage the community on the findings of the Master Plan and to gain public input. The first open house took place Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the Quantum Helicopters facility, located at 2401 S. Heliport Way, Chandler. 

2010 Airport Master Plan

The current master plan was adopted in 2007 and approved by the FAA in 2010. It guides the City's efforts to prioritize, fund and implement improvements at the airport. The Airport Master Plan and City Council documentation is available for download above.

* It is important to note that although the study suggests extending Runway 4R/22L to 5700 feet, Chandler City Code requires a successful bond vote on this issue before such an extension may occur.
