The Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) will hold the next virtual public meeting for Rhode Island’s General Aviation (GA) airport communities on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. as a “lunch and learn” webinar for local officials and members of the public. The meeting will be held via Zoom. A link for the meeting can be found on the Rhode Island Secretary of State’s website and at https://flyri.com on the day of the meeting.
The virtual briefing affords RIAC with the opportunity to provide development updates on state airports to the community, including those towns hosting or abutting Rhode Island’s five GA airports: Block Island, Newport, North Central, Quonset and Westerly State Airports. The meetings, held on a quarterly basis, also provide an opportunity for the public, as well as local officials, to engage with RIAC regarding state airports in their community. Those who wish to suggest agenda items for the meeting can email recommended topics at [email protected].
About the Rhode Island Airport Corporation: The Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) was formed on December 9, 1992 as a semi-autonomous subsidiary of the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation to operate and maintain the state’s airport system. The powers of the corporation are vested in its seven-member board of directors, all of whom are appointed by the governor. RIAC is responsible for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the six state-owned airports; and the supervision of all civil airports, landing areas, navigation facilities, air schools and flying clubs. In addition to Rhode Island T. F. Green International Airport, RIAC is responsible for five general aviation airports throughout the state: Block Island, Newport, North Central, Quonset and Westerly.
