AIR TRANSPORTATION PARK

The new Mingo County Airport (Appalachian Regional Airport), located at Varney, West Virginia, boasts a brand new, state of the art 5,000’ runway and taxi-way, complete with lighting, fencing and wind instrumentation.  This FAA approved facility was constructed as a post mine land use project with Alpha Natural Resources, the Mingo County Airport Authority, and the WV Aeronautics Commission.  Once its surface mining operation was complete and the airport facility was constructed to rough grade, Alpha Natural Resources DONATED this 900 acre site to Mingo County, at no cost to the taxpayers!!  The 2012 opening of this facility affords Mingo County (1) an improved quality of general aviation services; (2) a safer environment for aircraft operations; and (3) hundreds of acres of developable land for aviation related and light industrial businesses needed to generate job creation in Mingo County.  The park was just designated as AEROready, which is a validation of the community and region for the aerospace industry.
