Pennsylvania has 121 public-use aviation facilities including airports, heliports, and seaplane bases, and these new investments will expand aviation-related operational and economic opportunities statewide.

In Berks County, Reading Regional/Carl A. Spaatz Field will receive $3 million for Air Operations Hangar Complex Infrastructure to accommodate the growth of an existing airport tenant.
