RDU’s runway: Why it matters

Last week we formally commenced our letter writing campaign to secure significantly increased federal funding support to replace and relocate the primary runway at RDU. This is a cooperative initiative in concert with The Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina and the Triangle-J Council of Governments, along with several of our member chambers of commerce.

If we are successful, we will accomplish three things:

  • Our runway will maximize federal funding support
  • We will realize more of our fair share for federal taxes paid into the national aviation system
  • We will preserve our limited local funding for other critical airside and landside needs at RDU

Please fill out this short form by this Friday, March 4th, or as soon as you

Remember, you only need to let us know whether and when you could send a letter this spring — you don’t actually need to write the letter now.

Thank you for your help in advancing our highest organizational priority.

Let’s get moving,
