    The Fly Washington Passport Program has issued a challenge to airports to encourage activity at the airport and to help the community at the same time.  Airports can participate in a food drive with the help of pilots to collect nonperishable goods to be distributed to local food banks.  When pilots land or drive into one of the participating airports, they are encouraged to drop off food items.  The items will be collected and delivered to local food centers.  The campaign runs until November 20, 2020. Airports participating in the campaign are: Chehalis, Auburn, Olympia, Arlington, Harvey Field, Wenatchee, Port Angeles, Norman Greer, Sequim Valley Airport, and Anacortes.

    Why is this Important?
    The State Capital Improvement Program (SCIP) tackles the challenge of targeting limited state and federal resources and prioritizing aviation projects statewide. By submitting your CIP information, you are identifying airport projects that will compete for state and or/federal funding within the next five years (2022-2026).

    What if I miss the deadline?
    After the two-month submission window officially ends on Oct. 31, you will be unable to make any changes or add any projects until next year’s “Open Season”.

    How do I update my information?
    Update your CIP information by using our web application: https://business.wsdot.wa.gov/aviation/planning/systemplan/conditionassessment/partners/

    For NPIAS airports this year, due to staffing changes at the FAA Seattle Airport District Office there will be fewer Joint Planning Conferences (JPCs). More information on the SCIP process for NPIAS airports will be shared in the near future.

    If you have any questions, please contact John MacArthur at (360) 596-8954 or macartj@wsdot.wa.gov.

    Thank you.
