Northeast Philadelphia Airport, Pennsylvania

DY Consultants was tasked to undertake an update of the Critical Aircraft and the Airport Layout Plan to reflect the most recent conditions and developments at Northeast Philadelphia Airport, the general aviation reliever airport for Philadelphia International Airport.
