D.L. Howell & Associates will assist the Brandywine Airport in their efforts to widen their main runway. The Brandywine Airport opened in 1940 after West Chester’s original airport, Sky Haven Airport, located a couple of miles away, was forced to close due to a court order. The airport utilized grass runways until the 80’s when, through a change in ownership, various improvements were made and the runways were paved. Additional hanger and runway lengthening projects took place in the 1990s. Brandywine Airport is a privately owned facility engaging in aircraft repair and flight training.
Most recently, plans have been finalized to widen the main runway, which is intended to provide safer take-offs and landings. However, in order to do so adjustments to the existing property boundaries with several adjacent property owners must take place. D.L. Howell & Associates will navigate the Brandywine Airport through a complicated process of lot line adjustment, compliance with area and bulk requirements set forth in the local zoning codes, and recordation of new property boundaries, all while ensuring compliance with FAA regulations.
