Airport Engineering and Planning

Could you use a partner? Someone to help you with today’s problems and make wise plans for the future? Someone who knows airport engineering, what other airports are doing today, and how FAA regulations will impact your plans.

With 40 years of airport engineering experience serving large and small airports—hundreds of projects both airside and landside—Prein&Newhof works with Michigan’s airports as an extension of their staff to help optimize airport operations and address challenges head-on.

Prein&Newhof designed its first airport project in 1982. Since then, our airport consulting practice has expanded to include 40 General Aviation and Air Carrier Airports across Michigan. We have a strong reputation for creative design, unrivaled construction support, and giving every client our undivided attention. Our Airport Consulting services include:
