R.A. Wiedemann & Associates, Inc., performed a business plan for Brookhaven Airport in 2001. Issues considered by the plan included continued use of the Airport by Dowling College, expanded business use of the Airport, increased general aviation activity, development of Airport property, new and better access to the Airport from William Floyd Parkway, development of an overall Airport use plan, and continued good public relations with the community. The recommended plan of action incorporated four primary strategic initiatives:
1) Attraction of Corporate Aviation: Physical improvements to the Airport and a strategic shift toward the attraction of corporate aviation was needed to bolster revenues and on-airport employment. Brookhaven Calabro Airport is ideally suited to take advantage of this market niche.
2) TransTech Park: As a part of the Brookhaven Center, TransTech Park was anticipated to attract both aviation and non-aviation tenants to the Airport complex. It was recommended that development of this Park be encouraged and supported by the Town.
3) Non-Aviation Revenues: It was recommended that the Town attempt to market and develop industrial/commercial property on the Airport to help fund the ongoing operation of the facility.
4) Continue to Serve Small General Aviation Aircraft: Brookhaven Calabro Airport serves as an aircraft training facility through the Dowling College Aeronautics program, the local BOCES program, and private industry. The Airport also serves as home to over 200 aircraft. This portion of the business is vital to the future life of general aviation on Long Island.
