Rock Hill and York County will work together to provide for an exceptional general aviation center that will help us achieve our shared goals of becoming a premier community, serving as a gateway to South Carolina and linked with the global economy.


Strategies to Realize Vision Statement

We will act responsibly to achieve our vision by:

  • Building a strong public and governmental consensus as to the essential value of an economically vibrant airport that serves the community safely and effectively and preserves quality of life in the surrounding community
    • Establish a standing airport advisory committee comprised of a diverse mix of neighbors and community leaders to represent the general community, its interests and concerns about the airport
    • Complete a Business Plan that will analyze the airport's current and potential economic impact on the community and serve as a marketing tool for the airport
  • Improving the current Airport infrastructure
    • Consider acquisition of land consistent with the Airport Master Plan and that promotes compatibility with the surrounding community
    • Extend the runway to at least 6,500'
    • Provide corporate and other types of hangar facilities as needed
    • Enhance the airfield electrical system, navigational aids and other safety measures pursuant to advances in technology
    • Provide facilities and services that will make RH-YC Airport the general aviation airport of choice in the region
  • Working aggressively to remove obstacles that hinder appropriate and balanced Airport development
    • Maintain compatible land uses on adjacent property
    • Promote compatible revenue generating businesses and activities on site
  • Assuring that the Airport remains fully capable of serving as the FAA designated general aviation reliever for Charlotte Douglas International Airport
