    The Washington State Department of Transportation Aviation Division initiated an update to the Washington Aviation Economic Impact Study (AEIS) starting in October.

    This study, last updated in 2012, provides critical information on the value of our state's aviation system.  It will calculate and document the economic contributions airports make to local communities, regions, and the state.  Analyses will identify off-airport businesses and industries who use and depend on the airports.  It is widely used throughout the state to communicate aviation's benefits for citizens of Washington state.

    Each public-use airport in the state will receive the results to share with their stakeholders about the airport's value and contributions to the community.

    The consultant team consists of Kimley-Horn, Economic Development Research (EDR) Group, WSP USA, and PRR.  All have reached out to airports to request information to facilitate the economic impact analyses.

    The work involved to complete the study finalizes in February 2020.  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funded this study with a grant, with some supporting funds from WSDOT.

    In 2005 Congress passed a new law, known as the REAL ID Act. This law established new requirements for state issued identification to be used for certain purposes. Among those purposes is presenting identification in order to board a commercial flight. Currently, the requirement to present a REAL ID Act compliant identification card for the purpose of air travel is set to take effect January 22, 2018.

    Washington State’s REAL ID bill passed the Legislature this session and was signed into law by the Governor on May 16. The Federal REAL ID law requires state driver’s licenses to have security enhancements and to be issued to people who can prove they are legally in the United States. The law affects airports with commercial passenger service. It was passed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks to strengthen rules for identification needed at airports and federal facilities. The law creates a two-tiered system for driver’s licenses in Washington State. As of July 2018, standard driver’s licenses will be marked as non-compliant and will require a secondary form of ID to board domestic commercial flights. Driver’s may also elect to pay for an enhanced driver’s license that meets Federal requirements.
