The Vermont State Legislature, through Section 17 of Act 62 (H.443) of the 2011 Vermont Legislative Session, required the completion of a business plan to achieve the goal of reducing or eliminating the existing operating deficits of State-owned airports by June 30, 2015. This legislation excluded those airports that provide daily commercial passenger service and are certified under 14 CFR 139. This Aviation Program-Wide Business Plan satisfies the requirements under Section 17, by reviewing aircraft registration fees, hangar fees, landing fees, and other service fees that would produce net revenue for the State when compared to those fees charged by other states and other airport sponsors. In addition to these revenue enhancements, this study also considers several additional recommendations that will improve both financial and functional operation of the state-owned airports, and considers the local benefits based on the presence of the aviation system.
