To get a jump start on the last and the third package of the reconstruction of Runway 6-24, the largest at Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE), that runway and associated taxiways will close on March 24, 2021 – a week earlier than planned thanks to favorable weather
What is your current position at PNE and how long have you worked here?
Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE) was awarded a $9.1 million Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grant by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to rehabilitate Runway 6-24, which is PNE's primary runway and accounts for approximately 60 percent of the airport’s traffic. This is the largest FAA AIP grant PNE has ever received.
When asked how they prepare for a trip, most travelers will answer with: taking care of the airfare, travel accommodations and rental car; making sure that everyone has their passport/ID; and getting to the airport on time, among other things.
Does anyone think about the air control towers of the airports they fly out of and into?
Northeast Philadelphia Airport originally opened in the 1930s as Northeast Airport – a grass field with no paved runways. During World War II, the U.S. Army Air Corps intended to develop the site as an airbase, but later abandoned the project.
