State Aviation Day is Scheduled for April 2
The Missouri aviation community will be meeting in the Capitol on April 2 to participate in State Aviation Day. This year’s event marks thirteen years in which all segments of the aviation industry have converged on Jefferson City in order to meet with their legislators. From 9 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon airport managers, pilots, technicians, consultants, and business owners will be circulating in the capitol in the third floor Rotunda area. 
Lee's Summit Municipal Airport Honored for Engineering Excellence
The City received three Honor Awards at the 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards including one for improvements made to the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport.

The City collaborated with Crawford, Murphy & Tilly to help position the Lee’s Summit Municipal Airport as a new gateway to the Kansas City metro. The project included an expansion of the main runway from 4,016 feet to 5,501 feet. The main runway was also widened to 100 feet. These enhancements allow heavier corporate aircraft to take off and land at the airport.
