Cantrell Field

Last Wednesday, I spent part of the day photographing at the Cantrell Field at the new Conway (AR) Municipal Airport for Arkansas Business.

This is a gorgeous little airport. The new site has about 430 acres inside the airport fence and a weight capacity of more than four times that of the old airport which was located just off of Interstate 40. That airport is now closed. Conway voters recently approved a capital improvement bond package that included two infrastructure projects aimed at turning the old municipal airport into a shopping destination.

The new airport’s all-LED airfield, outfitted in hues of white, blue and amber, is the first in the country to have all LED lights on the airfield.

The terminal is bright, spacious with lots of natural light and a vibrant color scheme. I photographed Conway airport Manager Josh Zylks both inside the terminal and out on the tarmac.
