Oregon's third busiest airport plans for the future.

The Bend Municipal Airport relies heavily on funding from the FAA. The FAA determined that an update to the Master Plan is warranted due to continuing increasing operations. The plan kicks off this Fall. The primary user and neighbors will be key stakeholders in the planning process.

Master Plan Process

Century West Engineering was awarded the contract in September of 2018 to provide planning services in the development of an Airport Master Plan Update and Airport Layout Plan for the Bend Municipal Airport.  The Airport is currently operating under the Master Plan adopted in 2013.


Primary user groups and neighbors will be key stakeholders in the planning process.

  • Deschutes County Departments/Commissions
  • Airport Tenants
  • Airport Employees
  • FAA
  • ODA
  • US Forest Service
  • BLM
  • Other Government Partners

Meeting Schedule and Materials: 

As part of the Airport Master Plan there are two separate meeting types,  Planning Advisory Committee  ( PAC) meetings and Regional Stakeholder meetings.

Due to the circumstances of numerous FAA delays during the forecast review process and COVID-19 the planning team will update the project schedule and devise a public involvement plan to move the project forward once the Aviation Activity Forecasts have obtained FAA approval. 

 Next Meeting:  Planning Advisory Committee #3
