United States Senators Johnny Isakson, R-Georgia, and Saxby Chambliss, R-Georgia, announced that Valdosta Regional Airport will receive a $613,469 grant for needed improvements. . . . . . .

. . . . .Specifically, the funding will be used to design and construct airfield lighting and update runway signage.

This should help finish off improvements started a couple of years ago. Rwy 17/35 was extended to 8002' about a year ago, making it capable of handling almost any type of air traffic. Its is one of 4 Georgia airports w/ runways over 8k', the other three being atlanta, savannah, and augusta.

all of atlanta's rwy's are 9k' and over though, w/ one being 10k' and another almost 12k'.
