Just four miles from the historic and charming Port Townsend, this airport gets a major upgrade to bring it into the 21st century.
Clarity in the Fog
Strategically located at the opening of Admiralty Inlet, Jefferson County Airport pilots get a little help navigating in fog.
A view from above. Nestled in a community bustling with artists and flanked by a former Army installation, sits the Jefferson County International Airport in Port Townsend, Washington. This community on the northeast tip of the Olympic Peninsula is host to nearly 60,000 flight operations each year. Due to its geography, foggy conditions are not uncommon. The airport needed an aeronautical survey done to support the development of upgraded approach procedures, using GPS, to provide more flight capabilities in reduced visibility weather conditions.
Reid Middleton performed an AGIS obstruction survey of the airport and its airspace surfaces leading to the FAA’s development of a new GPS approach procedure to the airport.
