Just south of the EAA Fairgrounds, Fond du Lac Regional Airport just finished up a series of improvements that created shovel-ready plots for new hangar construction. The original plan was scheduled over a three-year timeline but because all the planning and funding were already in place, the entire project was completed over the course of approximately one year.
I spoke with the Fond du Lac Airport Manager, John Wehner, last fall while they were in the middle of the improvement effort. The effort consisted of adding two new airport gates that regulate auto traffic to the GA and corporate hangar areas, the addition of a new cul-de-sac on the airport’s west-side entrance, installation of new and improved taxiways, the preparation of approximately 3 acres of land dedicated for up to five corporate flight facilities, and the grating of land adjacent to existing GA hangars on the south and west ends of the airport.
