Branson, Missouri has long been a tourist destination, but prior to the opening of the Branson Airport, travelers were hampered by the lack of truly local, affordable air service. Coffman Associates conducted a multi-faceted site selection project that included feasibility analysis, airport master planning, and environmental analysis. As a planned commercial service airport, FAA Part 139 approval was also required. To finalize the project, we assisted in acquiring necessary permits from local and state jurisdictions and as well as getting FAA planning and environmental approval of the airport layout plan, airspace, instrument approaches, and Part 139. The airport officially opened for business in May 2009 as the only privately owned and operated commercial service jet airport in the U.S.
