Project Experience: Leesburg Executive Airport, Virginia

The Challenge

Assessing the impact of a new landing system and runway approach at Leesberg Executive Airport.

The Strategy

As the prime contractor, HMMH:

  • Prepared an EA for the proposed construction and establishment of a Category I Instrument Landing System Glide Slope for the approach to Runway 17
  • Prepared the noise, air quality, and compatible land use sections of the EA
  • Managed the consulting team
  • Assessed improvements to the airport infrastructure and approach areas necessary to meet FAA design and safety standards
  • Assessed impact of actions, such as removal of trees, terrain and other obstructions, and how they could achieve sufficient centerline separation distance from the runway

The Solution

HMMH delivered a comprehensive analysis of the issues surrounding the structural changes at the airport.
