WK Dickson, a recognized aviation planning and design leader, offers a comprehensive range of services for all types of airports – from air carriers to general aviation. Our creative solutions to aviation-related projects, combined with our knowledge and understanding of the local airport community, enable us to produce efficient and functional designs that can meet any growing airport’s needs.

Our approach to any airport project is multi-disciplinary, and it involves the pooling of various engineering disciplines, agencies, contractors, executives and the end users.

Our airport technical staff has been involved in over 2,000 airport projects at 100+ airports throughout the southeast, ranging from master plans to the overall design of general aviation, reliever, and air carrier airports. We have helped airports capitalize on their economic potential through our planning and funding efforts for new facilities.
