What is a Master Plan?


A master plan is a document that charts the proposed evolution of an airport to meet the future needs. The typical airport master plan has a planning horizon of 20 years.  The Federal Aviation Administration notes that for a master plan to be considered valid it must be updated every 20 years or when changes in the airport or surrounding environment occur, or when moderate or major construction may require federal funding.
