Did you know that there are 138 public use airports in Kansas? These airports provide critical air ambulance service for area residents and can generate economic growth for a community. However, to be able to do all this, sometimes, they need a makeover.

Not only did this improve the accessibility for the airport, it helped to generate additional development around the area. Check out what it looks like today.
