  • Abstract:
    The number of airports in the nation is on a decline. This reality has been documented by multiple sources, and is perhaps best illustrated

    by the number of public-use facilities nationwide that have closed over the past several years. In 2001, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots

    Association (AOPA) documented that the annual closure rate for public-use airports is one every two weeks. At its worst, the public-use

    airport annual closure rate averaged one a week. While most closures have been to privately-owned, public-use facilities, municipallyowned,

    public-use facilities are not immune to this trend. Regardless of ownership, nearly every one of these closures has been a general

    aviation facility. This has diminished the overall capacity of the nation’s system of airports during a time of increased ai r traffic activity and in

    time, will affect those facilities supporting commercial passenger service by leaving fewer airports to accommodate growing demand. Whi le

    negative effects to commerce and both local and national economies are certain, airport closures also threaten to undermine the community

    access provided by general aviation.

    Understanding this threat to public-use airports, the NHDOT Bureau of Aeronautics decided to analyze Hampton Airfield as a case study.

    This small but active airport has endured many of the same challenges as airports much larger. One of the most impressive differences is

    the fact that the private owners have done so with very limited outside financial support. For this reason, the various aspects of the Hampton

    Airfield’s operation have been evaluated and documented in this report. This information has been used to develop tools that are intended

    to help promote, preserve, and protect not only Hampton Airfield, but other public-use airports facing similar challenges in New Hampshire

    and throughout the country. An Airport Preservation Tool Box was developed concurrently with this study and is intended primarily as a

    resource for airport stakeholders and proponents. The toolbox was published in 2008 and can be accessed through the NHDOT, Bureau of

    Aeronautics’ website.
