Iowa aviation system plan

The Iowa Aviation System Plan provides a detailed overview of the Iowa aviation system. It evaluates existing conditions and makes recommendations for future development of the air transportation system to meet the needs of users over the next 20 years. Federal, state and local decision makers use the plan as a guide for future investment and activity decisions to maintain and develop, as necessary, airports in the state of Iowa.

The 2010-2030 Iowa Aviation System Plan can be found below. It includes an executive summary, a full technical report, and individual reports for every public-owned airport in Iowa. Additional information for individual airports can be found in the Airport Information section on this website.
