Tipton Airport is located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. It is a General (GA) airport, classified as a reliever airport by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It is the reliever airport to the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), which is located less than 13 miles from Tipton. The airport plans to extend their runway from 3,000 feet to 4,200 feet. The main objective for this expansion is to increase the number of larger turbo-planes and business aircrafts, which require longer runways that can use the facility. This will expand the airport’s market reach and user base, allowing it to improve the ease of flying for potential users. The purpose of this study is to determine the future demand for corporate service and other air traffic at the airport in light of the runway expansion, and to recommend additional variables that will help increase air traffic.
