Enid airport receives state funds for additional overnight aircraft storage options
ENID, Okla. — The Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission approved an allocation at Enid Woodring Regional Airport.
The board voted to appropriate $180,000 to Woodring for a concrete apron with built-in tie-down points, to be built between the airport terminal and the joint-use military-civilian hangar, said Mike Cooper, City of Enid military liaison and OSMPC chairman.
The apron would be used to park military or civilian aircraft that overnight at the airport. Presently, if a number of planes park at the airport overnight and if there is no more hangar space, the aircraft must be parked on an aging ramp far from the terminal.
“We have to have a place to park them without putting them on the south ramp away from the terminal building,” Cooper said.
