6.      ECONOMIC IMPACTS BY AIRPORT

The economic impact analysis has demonstrated the significant contribution that New York
State’s airports make to the economy. The airports act as economic catalysts, supporting direct
as well as secondary employment, payroll, and output benefits. Further, as identified through
this study’s surveys, businesses throughout the State rely on the availability of commercial
service and general aviation airports. The following section presents the benefits that 76 of New
York’s airports provide. Qualitative benefits provided by each airport are also noted. These 76
airports were identified for specific study, while the impact for remaining public and private use
airports in New York State was estimated by grouping and extrapolating results. The remainder
of the report is organized alphabetically with the commercial service airports first, followed by
the general aviation airports.

Adirondack Regional Airport
Adirondack Regional Airport is a commercial service Airport serving the Saranac Lake region.
Continental Connection (Commutair) provides service from the Airport to Albany and
Plattsburgh, with one-stop service to Boston, MA, on a twice daily basis. In addition to
commercial service, Adirondack Regional supports general aviation activity.

The Airport’s economic impact was measured through the use of two surveys: aircraft tenant and
on-Airport business. Surveys of on-Airport employers revealed that 31 full and part-time jobs
and over $3.3 million in expenditures are a direct result of on-Airport businesses, including
Airport management employment and spending. It should be noted that the impact of all of these
numbers is multiplied by successive rounds of spending within the local economy.

In addition to the employees of Continental Connection, the Airport supports employees of rental
car companies, aircraft maintenance and fuel sales personnel, law enforcement and Airport
management. The importance of the Airport to area commerce is underscored by its business
clientele. Prominent corporate users of Adirondack Regional Airport include CitiCorp,
Travelers, Harlan Crowe, Intelocken Financial Services, Pepsi, Pizza Hut, Turner Broadcasting,
and others. The attraction of corporate and large charter aircraft is a natural market niche due to
the long runway length and other amenities available at the Airport.

Finger Lakes Regional
Finger Lakes Regional Airport is a general aviation airport in the Genesee Finger Lakes Region.
Activity at the Airport improved with the active involvement of Seneca County government, in
collaboration with the private sector. Over a dozen businesses were noted to utilize the Airport
on a regular basis. Corporate aircraft and courier services are frequent users of the facility,
bringing executives, technical staff, and parts for manufacturing processes and equipment repair.

In 1998, the Genesee Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council prepared an economic impact
analysis for Finger Lakes Regional Airport based on data for 1997. Using the methodology
prepared for the New York State Department of Transportation, data regarding expenditures for
on-Airport services and off-site users were collected. For purposes of this study, the data were
extrapolated to year 2000.

Floyd Bennett Memorial
Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport is located in the Town of Glens Falls in Warren County, New
York. The Airport is approximately 45 miles north of Albany. The Airport is used to
accommodate business/corporate activity, as well as recreational flying. A survey of aircraft
owners conducted on behalf of the Airport indicated that one-third of the flights at the Airport
are for business purposes.

Two surveys were developed and administered to different segments of Floyd Bennett Memorial
Airport’s aviation economy: aircraft tenant and on-Airport business. There are three on-Airport
employers: FBO, county, and FAA. Surveys of businesses revealed that 15 full and part-time
jobs and over $2.2 million in expenditures are a direct result of on-Airport aviation-related
businesses. It should be noted that the impact is multiplied by successive rounds of spending
within the local economy.

Floyd Bennett Memorial supports on-Airport employees of the county, the FBO, and the FAA.
The importance of the Airport to area commerce is underscored by its business clientele.
Prominent corporate users of the Airport include Executive Jet Aviation, Fleet Bank, Federal
Express, Citigroup Corporation, Assembly Point Aviation, Bombardier Aerospace Corporation,
Great Lakes Chemical, Delmar Box Company, International Paper, Wells Fargo, Newman
Racing, Tribune Media, Royal Air Freight, Coyne International Enterprises, Aviation One LLC,
Richard Air Inc., Target, and many others.

Genesee County Airport
Genesee County Airport is a general aviation airport in the Genesee Finger Lakes Region.
Businesses on-site at the Airport currently provide service to an estimated one- half of the aircraft
in the Rochester metropolitan area. This indicates a substantial use of the Airport for business
use. A 1991 study of the economic impact at the Airport indicated that over 73 percent of
general aviation operations are business-related and that in Genesee County, these companies
represent over 3,000 employees and an estimated $75 million in payroll.

In 1998, the Genesee Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council prepared an economic impact
analysis for Genesee County Airport based on data for 1997. Using the methodology prepared
for the New York State Department of Transportation, data regarding expenditures for on-
Airport services and off-site users were collected. For purposes of this study, the data were
extrapolated to year 2000.

Griffiss Airpark
The Griffiss Airpark effectively accommodates the needs of general aviation Airpark users who
are destined for the central portion of New York State. As a former air force base, Griffiss has
an extensive runway system and is home to Griffiss Business and Technology Park. The Park
has tenants such as Air Force Research Laboratory at Rome Research Site, New York State
Technology Enterprise Corporation, and numerous businesses that have located within the Park’s
facilities. There are no based aircraft located at Griffiss Airpark.
The Airport’s economic impact was measured through the use of two surveys: Airport
management and on-Airport employers. Surveys of on-Airport employers revealed that 10 full
and part-time jobs and nearly $650,000 in expenditures are direct results of on-Airport
businesses. Added to these numbers are the successive rounds of spending that occur in the local
economy.
The importance of the Airpark to area commerce is in many ways defined by its business
clientele. Prominent corporate and institutional organization Airpark users include Champlain
Enterprises Inc. and Cobair LLC. It is anticipated that through the continued transition of the
Airpark from its former military use to civilian use that additional business activity will occur.

Hamilton Municipal Airport
Hamilton Municipal Airport is a general aviation airport in the Syracuse region. The Airport has
two FBOs that provide services including flight instruction, fuel, and maintenance. Mid-York
Business Airpark is adjacent to the Airport.

In 1997, the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board prepared an
economic impact analysis for Hamilton Municipal Airport based on data for 1997. Using the
methodology prepared for the New York State Department of Transportation, data regarding
expenditures for on-Airport services and off- site users were collected. For purposes of this
study, the data were extrapolated to year 2000.

Lake Placid Airport
Lake Placid Airport serves an important general aviation market niche in Essex County.
Aviation activities occurring at the Airport include significant business, recreational flying,
police/law enforcement, aerial photography and surveying, search and rescue, emergency
medical evacuation, and real estate tours.

The Airport’s economic impact was measured through the use of two surveys: Airport
management and on-Airport employers. Surveys of on-Airport employers revealed that 13 full
and part-time jobs and nearly $1.5 million in expenditures are a direct result of on-Airport
businesses, including Airport management. Visitor spending is added to this impact to derive the
total economic activity at the Airport.

The importance of the Airport to area commerce is in many ways defined by its business
clientele. Prominent corporate and institutional organization users include New York State
Police, New York Power Authority, American Management Association, Dabingee Services
Inc., Fuccillo Automotive Group Inc., and U.S. Customs Service.

Oneonta Municipal Airport
Oneonta Municipal Airport serves a significant general aviation market niche in Otsego County.
It is the closest paved airport to Cooperstown, which is located 20 miles to the north. The
Airport features services such as air ambulance, air cargo, and air taxi and charter service.
Tourism is one of Otsego County’s largest industries. In this regard, Oneonta Municipal is the
primary general aviation gateway to Cooperstown, the National Baseball Hall of Fame. During
major ceremonies or inductions at Cooperstown, Oneonta Municipal is filled to parking capacity
with high-performance aircraft. The Airport plays a key role in the transportation of sports
figures, dignitaries, and other visitors to the area. While the Airport is used heavily in the
summer for regional attractions, it serves many other strategic purposes including business
transportation, new business development, medevac, law enforcement, and others.
Three surveys were developed and administered to different segments of Oneonta Municipal
Airport’s aviation economy: aircraft tenant, on-airport employer, and on-Airport business.
Surveys of businesses revealed that 5 full and part-time jobs and over $1.1 million in
expenditures are a direct result of on-Airport aviation-related businesses. It should be noted that
the impact is multiplied by successive rounds of spending within the local economy.

The importance of the Airport to area commerce is underscored by its business clientele.
Prominent corporate users of the Airport include Corning Glass, Wal-Mart, Price Chopper, Clark
Companies, OBC, Inc., Astrocom Electronics, NYSE&G, Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown
Dreams Park, Soccer Hall of Fame, Unilam, Delaware Otsego Railroad, SUNY Oneonta, SUNY

Orange County Airport
Orange County Airport is owned by the Orange County and serves as a full-service general
aviation resource. The Airport offers corporate aviation, private aviation, charter, and medical
air transportation services. The Airport has the highest number of t-hangars in New York State
and attracts much activity related to tourist and business trips. Orange County Airport is
considered an important component of corporate travel due to the county’s high number of
corporations, headquarters locations, and administrative offices. In addition to its aviation role,
the Airport provides space for snow mobile racing, concerts and festivals, flea markets, and dog
training facilities.
In 1998, the Hudson Valley Regional Council conducted the Economic Impact Study for Orange
County Airport. The study used the economic aviation model developed for New York State
Department of Transportation in 1990 to estimate the impacts. For purposes of this study, these
impacts were extrapolated to year 2000.

Oswego County Airport
Oswego County Airport is a general aviation airport serving primarily local aviation needs. The
Airport is used by aircraft owners and businesses in the Oswego County region, including
Dowling College of Long Island and a university in Central New York.

In 1997, Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board prepared an economic
impact analysis for Oswego County Airport. Using the methodology prepared for the New York
State Department of Transportation, data regarding expenditures for on-Airport services and off-
site users were collected. For purposes of this study, the data were extrapolated to year 2000.

Plattsburgh International Airport
The Plattsburgh International Airport serves the general aviation needs of residents and itinerants
in northeastern New York. The Airport is located only 20 miles from the U.S. Canada border
along Lake Champlain, across from Burlington, Vermont. The Airport serves an important
aviation and multi- modal market niche in Clinton County. As a former air base that was closed
in 1995, the facility is managed by Plattsburgh Airbase Redevelopment Corporation (PARC).
PARC is responsible for the 5,000-acre facility, including development of the significant
industrial park. There are currently 60 tenants that perform manufacturing, medical care, food
processing, and jet engine testing, to name a few. Some of the current tenants include
Bombardier, GSM Vehicles, Pratt & Whitney, and Westinghouse Airbrake.

The Airport’s economic impact was measured through the use of two surveys: Airport
management and on-Airport employers. Surveys of on-Airport employers revealed that 86 full
and part-time jobs and nearly $8.2 million in expenditures are a direct result of on-Airport
businesses, including Airport management. Visitor spending is added to this impact to derive the
total economic activity at the Airport.

The importance of the Airport to Area Commerce is in many ways defined by its business
clientele. Prominent corporate and institutional organization users include C.V.P.H. Medical
Center, Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories, Clinton Correctional Facility, State University of New York
at Plattsburgh, Clinton County Government, Georgia-Pacific Corporation, Bombardier
Transportation, Pratt & Whitney, Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club, and Altona Correctional Facility.

Potsdam Municipal Airport
Potsdam Municipal Airport is located in the Town of Potsdam, St. Lawrence County, in northern
New York State. From a regional perspective, the Airport is approximately 17 miles southeast of
the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Canadian border. The Airport serves most types of light
general aviation aircraft and provides a base for economic development in the region.

The Airport’s economic impact was measured through the use of two surveys: Airport
management and on-Airport employers. Surveys of on-Airport employers revealed that 52 full
and part-time jobs and nearly $2.5 million in expenditures are a direct result of on-Airport
businesses, including Airport management. Visitor spending is added to this impact to derive the
total economic activity at the Airport.
