Master Plan

Aerial of HYA

The Master Plan is a long-term land use plan required by the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) guidance. The main objectives of the Master Plan are to:

  • Ensure safe and operationally efficient facilities that meet FAA standards,
  • Develop feasible and flexible alternatives to meet forecast demand, and
  • Define compatible land uses surrounding the airport.

The last full Master Plan was completed in 2008 and a minor update was made in 2010. Master Plans are generally updated every 10 years or when significant changes at the airport occur. The result of the Master Plan is the Airport Layout Plan, which shows existing and proposed (within the 20-year planning period) facilities. The Airport Layout Plan will be submitted to the FAA for approval.


The Master Plan is normally an 18- to 24-month process. We currently expect submittal to the FAA in early Summer 2021.

Public Participation and Public Outreach

The Planning Advisory Group (PAG) has been formed and is comprised of representatives from local, state, and federal governmental agencies, airlines, concessions, and private businesses to ensure expertise and input from stakeholders is captured.
