This airport is basically for corp. jets. Why not just roll this into the corporate welfare New York City gives the Mets and Yankees?

The expansion of the distance between the runway and taxi-way will ultimately entice more and more jet traffic and larger jets to this airport. "if you build it, they will come".

Thanks chucky and hill for you help (sarcasm)

They are not lenghteneing the runways, so the possibility of "bigger" jets is not in the cards at all.

This is a safety measure for the traffic ALREADY THERE.

Learn to read, so stay with your alarmist "complaining" baords, fdale.

For those that are worried about 'bigger jets', FRG already gets its handful of B737's and A320's already.....and i'm sure you all know that those airplanes are much quieter than most of the single and multi engine piston and turboprop airplanes that go in and out multiple times an hour....until FRG gets customs and a 10,000 ft runway you don't need to worry about larger airplanes......
