About the Airport

Located three miles northwest of Eloy in south-central Arizona, Eloy Municipal Airport (E60) is a general aviation airport that features a single paved runway (02/20) that is 3,901 feet long and 75 feet wide.

The airport is used for corporate and business flights to and from the area, and is also well known for its skydiving operations and associated businesses. The airport also serves as a staging area for rotorcraft serving the Banner Casa Grande Medical Center, and airport tenants provide agricultural spraying, aircraft painting, as well as maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services.

What is a Master Plan?

A Master Plan is a proactive document that identifies and then plans for future facility needs to ensure that airport management can coordinate project approvals, design, financing, and construction to avoid experiencing detrimental effects due to inadequate facilities. The ultimate goal of the study is to provide systematic guidelines for the airport’s overall maintenance, development, and operation.

Why Update the Plan?

The City of Eloy is undertaking an update of the Airport Master Plan, which was last prepared in 2013 (click here to see the previous plan), to evaluate the airport’s capabilities and role, to forecast future aviation demand, to plan for the timely development of new or expanded facilities that will meet demand and FAA design standards, and to strive for economic self-sufficiency. Coffman Associates has partnered with NV5 for GIS assistance, SWCA to assist with the environmental aspects of the study, and Dibble for engineering support.

Draft project materials will be made available on this site at various points throughout the planning process to allow the public to review materials and provide comments to the planning consultant.
