Martha’s Vineyard Airport Slated for Runway Renovation

Flying into Martha's Vineyard (KMVY) could be different this summer. A $7 million project now underway will relocate some 300 feet or pavement from one end of the main runway to the other. The purpose is to increase the overrun area to 1,000 feet from 700 feet. As part of the project, taxiways, runway end lighting and the instrument landing system (ILS) equipment must also be relocated.

Mark Phelps is a senior editor at AVweb. He is an instrument rated private pilot and former owner of a Grumman American AA1B and a V-tail Bonanza.
