ITHACA — The Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport is getting a $100,000 grant from the FAA to conduct a wildlife hazard assessment at the airport.
The grant will support a yearlong study of animal and bird activity at the airport. A report will then recommend how to mitigate any hazards.
In July, a landing plane hit wildlife on the runway, triggering the need for a hazard assessment.
95-percent of the cost of the study will come from the federal government.
