The Madras Airport is getting ready for a brand new look for the Air Show of the Cascades this year. Airport Manager Rob Berg says with a $1.7 million grant from the ODOT Connect Oregon 3 Program, they will bring the airport up to current aviation standards: “The project will be completed in late October. The first phase of it, though we're hoping to have completed here in August, just before the air show. The ramp expansion project where we'll have a nice new ramp area for the Air Show of the Cascades which is August 26th & 27th." Berg says they will also install a Federal Aviation Administration Automated Weather Observation System that will help pilots navigate through the various climates in Central Oregon. He adds that with the changes, pilots can now file with Madras as a primary destination, instead of having to file for Redmond.
