Ocean County Airport To Receive Grant

New Jersey Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker have announced a grant of $8.4 million to make necessary repairs and improvements to Atlantic City International Airport and Ocean County Airport. The overwhelming majority of the funds, $8 million, will go to Atlantic City’s airport to construct a plane de-icing facility, while $400,000 will go to Ocean County Airport to replace the airport’s beacon. The beacon is a usually a rotating light used to indicate the airport’s location to nearby aircraft. It is usually mounted a tall structure, most often the control tower, and produces flashes similar to that of a lighthouse.

Ocean County Airport, also known as Robert J. Miller Air Park, is a county-owned airport which is home to dozens of small aircraft, most of them single-engine. The 2-runway airport, opened in 1968 as the Ocean County Air Park, covers 232 acres in Bayville and has a single helipad for helicopters to take off from and land.

The airport is mostly used by those with privately-owned aircraft and flying schools.

    Maybe some of those funds can be allocated to improve the one bench, where all the children (and their parents) watch the planes.
