|April 2007 News:
Some members of SFAT were recently discussing the idea of joining Ban Thi
Airport with Nok airport (by extending Ban Thi's runway) to make them both
one airport. Since the airports are so close, this would be an excellent way
to increase safety and promote General Aviation in Thailand. If Ban Thi and
Nok were joined, then this would create the largest airpark in all of Asia.
SFAT and its members are very
active in promoting General Aviation and Aviation Safety in Thailand.
