The Kansas Association of Airports primary goal is to promote and protect all Kansas airports ranging from Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport to Beaumont’s famous grass strip.
Kansas airports also host a wide range of operations including air ambulance service, agricultural spraying, business transport, manufacturing, military aircraft, flight training, and recreational flying
The Kansas Association of Airports has been very involved with the Kansas Comprehensive Transportation Program. The need for a Kansas Airport Improvement Program is essential for all general aviation airports with poor or failed runways, taxiways and aprons. The goal of the KAA is to support the State Improvement Program so all public airports in Kansas have fair or better pavement conditions and functional airport airfield lighting systems.
KAA’s main goals include:
- Provide a medium for the exchange of ideas, methods, information and experience as they relate to airport management.
- Promote and encourage the passage of legislation on all levels for the good of Kansas airports and aviation.
- Promote and encourage the public's understanding of the value of aviation and an airport to the community.
- Cooperate with all governmental agencies and industry organizations having the betterment of aviation as their primary goal.
