How do the building and maintenance costs of gravel, concrete, and asphalt runways compare to each other? Especially under the unique needs of smaller operations, one method may be far and away the best choice.
Bill Chapple, former Project Manager for the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT), explains how Midwest has saved the local government millions of dollars while improving the safety of pilots and their aircraft.
Gravel runways are vital to remote airports across North America. Midwest Industrial Supply Inc.’s Fines Preservation Program ensures they are properly maintained.
Long-term customer relationships are the driving force behind Midwest’s solutions-based services.
For remote communities and mining operations, gravel runways serve as lifelines, bringing essential and otherwise inaccessible resources. The isolated nature of these small airstrips poses unique challenges for the engineers and managers tasked with maintaining the runways — chief among them, the problem of sourcing the materials needed to keep them operational.
