“The directory provides useful information for a pilot to plan a flight and to know how to communicate with a particular airport,” said MoDOT Administrator of Aviation Amy Ludwig. “Because airport conditions are constantly changing, this information is not to be used for navigation.”
A recent study by the Missouri Department of Transportation revealed Missouri airports contribute 100,621 jobs with a payroll of $ 3.1 billion to the Missouri economy. When all economic activities are considered, total annual economic output of Missouri’s system of airports is estimated at $11.1 billion. This represents 4.3 percent of the gross state product.
The directory is provided free-of-charge. Funding for this and all state aviation programs comes from aviation fuel taxes and not from general revenue or highway funds.
