Two new general aviation airports are preparing to take flight in Central Texas: a $30 million project starting construction next month and an ambitious $150 million project in Bastrop County that hopes to break ground this year, according to the Austin Business Journal.
The story about the two airports — Central Texas Airport and Austin Executive Airport — quotes Bill Gunn, a Texas Department of Transportation aviation division planner:
“Airports are like utilities. They are like power plants. A business airport supports business.”
