Airport safety supporters deem the upgrade vital, since the Aurora State Airport is considered the third busiest in Oregon.

The new Aurora control tower will provide air traffic controllers with greatly improved views of take offs, taxiing and landings. In addition to enhanced safety, the new control tower could provide a financial boost to greater Aurora, Oregon with what some suggest could pave the way for more economic growth.

    What an incredible waste of money. Not merely the construction cost, but the operating costs for an airport that lands a handful of airplanes each day. Once again government spending with zero return on investment or safety. As an ex-FAA Controller we should be closing small airport towers not opening new ones.
