Airport Capital Improvements Plan (ACIP)
A capital improvements plan (CIP) exists for the Gordonsville Airport. This plan is a 5-year plan that lists identified improvements to be made at the airport; its update is coordinated each year through the Virginia Department of Aviation. The projects listed are generally based on the improvements identified in the Airport Layout Plan noted above. Funding for projects is generally split between state (80%) and local (20%) funds. 

Currently funded in the Town's budget for FY21 is runway rehabilitation. Due to limited state funds, however, this project may be on hold until FY22.
