Ribbon cutting marks takeoff for Pullman Airport
January 2, 2020
2019 debuted the ending of a three-year construction project and month-long closure of the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport. The award at the end was a new 7,100 foot runway.
The airport was closed for a month to transition to the longer runway equipped with an Instrument Landing System to create a more reliable all-weather airport. Pilots can now land with an instrument approach which uses radio signals and high-intensity lighting arrays.
The ribbon-cutting event was held on the former runway for the airport where hundreds listened to speakers who were involved with the project.
