Central Texas Airport (CTA) is a planned airport within the proposed Eco-Merge Green Corporate Center complex in Bastrop County, Texas. It is in proximity to the intersection of Farm to Market Road 969 and Farm to Market Road 1704.
The airport is intended to house up to 250 aircraft. It is intended as a site to house private and commercial aircraft and supporting services for both kinds.
Austin Bergstrom International Airport is located approximately 13 miles (21 km) from the proposed Central Texas Airport. Two fixed-base operators (FBOs) are located at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and provide general aviation terminals, hangars, maintenance, and fuel facilities. The instrumented 9,000-foot (2,700 m) runway adjacent to both FBOs offers excellent airside access. T-Hangars at ABIA enhance general aviation facilities and provide extra shelter for 54 general aviation aircraft. With the T-hangars and tie downs, the general aviation area now contains space for about 170 small aircraft.
Austin Executive Airport, a 585-acre airport, offers private and corporate pilots an alternative to ABIA and is located just a half mile from Texas 130 tollway in Northeastern Travis County. This airport is approximately 16 miles (26 km) from the proposed Central Texas Airport that has faced considerable community opposition. The Austin Executive Airport has been open since mid-2011 with a new 6,000-foot (1,800 m) runway and taxiway, a 22,000-square-foot (2,000 m2) terminal, hangars huge and small and an array of other general aviation facilities. The Executive Airport is in a superior location to the planned siting of the Central Texas Airport with its own exit off of the HWY 130 Toll road, a major artery for Austin, Texas.
