b'LIGHTINGF8271One hangar was donated to Covenant Womens and Childrens Hospital in Lubbock for its new pediatric helicopter. The hospitals existing ambulance service will also be based at the airport hangar. Other changes made since the airport ownership changed hands focus on customer convenience and service: remodeled facilities for pilots making refueling stops, luggage assistance, concierge services and courtesy vehicles.Currently, the airport is the process of designing an instrument approach system. We feel the lighting was critical for the instrument system upgrade, Morrison notes. So with the good runway lights and good taxiway lights now in place, we now are confident that we have increased the safety and operability of our airport.Amid all the changes and improvements, some vestiges of the old days at Lubbock Executive might remain intact. Morrison and the new owners are considering hosting airshows in the future, as they were always popular events for the local community and fly-in customers. Drag racing on the runway and hardware store lighting, however, are officially relics of the past. The privately owned airport looks forward to lower energy bills since swapping out its incandescent lights for LEDs.PRINTWEBE-MAILAirport Projects Profiled HereFeaturing Airports, Their Consultants & SuppliersAIRPORTIMPROVEMENT.COM09 | 2023Lincoln Airport Takes Creative Route to Adding New Service Earrelayt Oe RPlAaTnPforor cOepsse Hnienlgp sD Daye sS uMcociensess Intl COHare Unveils Larger, More Modern Terminal 5 AIRPORT STORIES INSIDE: ABE|BWI|DSM|JFK|LAS|LNK|MCI|MSP|OAK|ORD|PAH|PGV|SEA|STL|YCENaesws eTnegrmeri nFalol wC oPnrnobecletmors/ TaSt AL eChhigehc kVpaolienytEInltiml inatesReeagttarled-iTnagc Homoma eInletsl sE Pmepohpales iizne sT eCromminpaal ssion SP.comThe Show & Tell of Airport Project WorkAirportImprovement.comOctober 2023'
