88 AVIATION VIEW VOLUME 2, ISSUE 3 for these spaces to be close to the terminal building, so those flying in via a commercial flight could hop onto one of these air taxis to fly to a national parks or ski resorts that are located nearby.” Looking near-term, Cedar City Regional has selected JVIATION a Woolpert Company to be their Engineers on record and have reselected T-O Engineers to be their Airport Planners. Together these companies will work with the airport and are capable of overseeing new energy projects like solar. Although, at this point, these projects haven’t been given a green light and aren’t included in the airport’s five to ten- year capital plan. Also, there’s been no demand for electric vehicle charging stations, as of yet, but as more individuals relocate to the Cedar City area from Las Vegas and California, and with the push for new certification for Electric Aircraft, Holt sees this as a trend that will need to be addressed in the future. Within the next three to five years, Holt says the airport would love to secure a grant for purchasing an additional Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) truck, fire equipment, and acquire snow clearing equipment. This equipment will require additional storage space in a new building. Also, working closely with the new mayor, the airport management team would like to be able to expand their boarding room within the terminal. The boarding room is the waiting area for passengers after they’ve gone through the TSA checkpoint. Expanding this room would prepare the airport to add new air services and bring in more visitors to the community. At the end of the day, Holt and his team look forward to seeing the airport grow alongside Cedar City and the surrounding area.
