Croy staff has provided aviation planning, design, and construction administration services for the Jimmy Carter Regional Airport for almost 25 years. During that time projects have included:

  • 150’ x 300’ apron expansion
  • Apron expansion, a new T-Hangar, associated taxilanes, access road, and parking area
  • Crack seal and airfield pavement remarking
  • T-Hangars and associated taxiways
  • Perimeter fencing
  • Medium intensity approach lighting system with sequenced flashers
  • Partial parallel taxiway
  • Apron expansion for additional aircraft parking
  • Glide slope facility
  • Rehabilitation, strengthening, and re-marking of Runway 5/23

Two notable past projects include a runway and parallel taxiway extension, and the relocation of the parallel taxiway. The 1,000’ runway extension necessitated the removal of an existing localizer facility and the design of a new localizer antenna and equipment.  Croy’s staff determined that the localizer needed to be elevated to provide adequate line-of-sight to the opposite runway end, and the antenna was therefore placed on an engineered earth mound.  The parallel taxiway relocation was necessary to ensure that the parallel taxiway met the standard for separation between the runway and taxiway for precision approaches.
