Caledonia County State Airport Business Plan
R.A. Wiedemann & Associates, Inc., participated as part of a team on the Business Plan for Caledonia County State Airport in 2008. The Airport had been without a fixed based operator (FBO) since 1986, and was currently unattended. In addition to this, the Airport lacked an airport beacon and had non-standard runway lighting.
The Business Plan looked at the lacking facilities and presented options for future development at the Airport, including the attraction of a new FBO and aircraft maintenance provider, increased hangar space, and the provision of standard airfield lighting.
In addition to potential development options, the Business Plan also discussed the potential for closure of the Airport as a result of few operations, the presence of other nearby general aviation airports, the difficulty in attracting an FBO, and potential costs associated with necessary future improvements, including airfield lighting, and a potential runway extension and rehabilitation.
