Oshkosh Airport To Get $200,000 Upgrades To Control Tower
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced yesterday that two Wisconsin airports will receive federal funding through the Federal Aviation Administration Contract Tower Program for the fiscal year 2023.
This funding, available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will modernize airport control towers with current technology and other operational enhancements.
Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee will receive $608,000 and Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh will receive $200,000 for improved operations and safety.
Wittman Regional Airport is familiar to many who participate in EAA AirVenture annually and it serves a vital role year-round for the businesses and travelers of the Fox River Valley.
Wittman Regional Airport’s project will replace old control tower equipment for better safety and lower operational costs.
The DOT says as the world’s busiest airport each year during EAA, this is important to the safety of thousands of pilots and ground crew.
