Transportation without doubt is a key ingredient for a growing economy. Capacity, convenience, speed, reliability, cost, all are important factors. Knowing that, a longer runway for Pangborn Memorial Airport looks essential.

The long-awaited runway extension project now is turning up for takeoff. The port commissioners for Chelan and Douglas counties Wednesday voted to accept a $9.9 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration, a first installment for what is expected to be a $30 million project. The FAA this spring already declared the runway project to be environmentally benign, bonds for the $3 million local match have closed and the first purchase agreements were signed with willing property owners in the project’s path.
