CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.  -- Clarksville Regional Airport was welcomed Aug. 1 as the 122nd organization to complete requirements and join the Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification Program. 

Airport Manager John Patterson told Green Ribbon Cutting attendees that through the Green Certification Program the airport has adopted sustainable practices and expanded its list of environmental priorities for the future. Business Development Manager Josh Vaughn attended the Green Certification workshop series in late 2018 and created an environmental policy and plan for the Airport. 

Now, in the airport’s main building, occupancy sensors have been installed in the offices and the staff converting to LED lighting. Water use is minimized with low-flow bathroom fixtures. The airport’s new runway, which opened in June, is lit with LED lights that improve visibility for pilots and save on energy. These items help the airport promote its sustainability to the public, employees and tenants, which now includes the Austin Peay State University Rotary Wing Flight School.

“We have meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 100 people and various events throughout the year that bring even larger numbers to the Airport," Vaughn said. "We want to demonstrate that we have a sustainable facility that enhances our natural environment while reducing impacts.” 

The airport is on Outlaw Field Road and offers general aviation services to both local and transit users. The airport does not offer commercial flights, but charter flights can be arranged. The main building of the airport is open to the public and contains a permanent collection of original paintings by aviation artist Raymond Waddey. Public meeting and event spaces are available for rental in the main building. A public flight school is also onsite.
