With the help of FAA grant money, the City has made many upgrades in the previous years at the Municipal Airport. In 2006, the entire runway was torn out and a new bed and asphalt was installed. Along with that project, new runway lights were installed and all runway markings were painted. More recently, a Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) lighting system was installed to assist pilots with landing. The lounge and office area was remodeled, making it more attractive for our guests arriving in Belleville.
