Groundbreaking of Panglao Airport Project
« on: January 14, 2008, 05:36:38 AM »
The groundbreaking ceremonies of the P4.2-billion Panglao Bohol International Airport (PBIA) is set on May 8 which will signal the commencement of the mega tourism project in this tourist destination province.
Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo who has ordered to fast track the project will be the guest of honor during the groundbreaking ceremony.

The bidding announcement of the project was already published in a national daily last week which confirms the President’s order to kick off the project, according to Gov. Erico Aumentado who was asked to attend the special meeting of the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) last Tuesday in Manila.

The governor was informed that the actual work will commence July or August this year while he confirmed earlier reports that the airport is scheduled for completion in 2010. The inauguration date is set on April 5, 2010 which is the natal day of the President.

The airport sprawls on a 215- hectare lot with a runway of 2,500 meters x 45 meters. The other components of the project are the passenger terminal building, administration building, air traffic control and crash-fire facility.

The P4-billion funding will come from the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) and P153 million from the Department of Transportation and Communication.

I say just expand and update the terminal in Tagbilaran. There is no need to disturb the environment in Panglao.

Having been involved in aviation professionally since I was 18 and still working in an airport part time, even tho I'm supposed to be retired, living close by under the flight path of one of its runways understanding the community and safety ramifications, and having been to and around TAG or RPVT last in 2005, there is no practical way to expand it at all, or update it w/o completely shutting down current operations for an extended period of time for months, if not years.

The reason the RP Govt wants to build an airport in Panglao to ICAO standards, despite the adverse ecological and environmental effects, is that it needs a close by alternate emergency landing field for Mactan Intl that can handle any aircraft that uses Mactan whether or not it is economically viable. The other closeby airport at Ormoc does not have as good meteorological statistics as Tagbilaran, more affected by typhoons than Mactan itself.

The next closest airport at Bacolod is too problematic aviation wise to consider it a viable alternate for emergency landings. Because of similar community and safety conditions at Lahug Airport in Cebu, the current Tagbilaran airport will suffer the same fate as Lahug, a better airport in its time than Tagbilaran ever was, having also been there myself.

So these are the aviation considerations, irregardless of the adverse impact on the environment and ecology of Panglao. Besides Bohol economic interests will not loose such an opportunity to Letye or Negros no matter what...joey

Lorenzo...You're most welcome! So what's your take on what I presume will be called the Carlos P. Garcia International Airport in Panglao, since it has a lot better chance of coming off than the bridge between Mactan and Jetafe...joey

Thank you Mr.Tabaco. Now I understand why the airport is in Panglao. My husband agrees with you as well since he has been an airport manager himself. He well understands the safety issues regarding the Tagbilaran airport and the lack of area to expand.

sgt.joy, thank you for the clarifications, it will surely makes sense!
Hence, you lose some, you gain some, right.
I would say I will agree to name it after Pres. Garcia since he was a Boholano President.

Glen...you're most welcome! I'm glad my explanation helps clear up the reasons the RP Govt needs to have the airport in Panglao despite the ecological and environmental degradation it will bring and the dubious economic advantage it purports to give to the province. The costs that will have to be borne by the local govts to build and maintain the infrastructure may be more of a curse than blessing in the long run.

W/o help from the Natl Govt and investors none of this will come to fruition. Let's hope that the help continues for more than the airfield itself, and that the local govts carefully manage the zoning and infrastructure to benefit more than the trapos' own pockets.

A good example of that at an airport itself is at where I work where the former Republican Town Supervisor allowed a major terminal expansion to be completed w/o meeting the local fire codes and the flightline ramp built below FAA specification, and then has the gall to name the concourse after himself, still alive in office. Needless to say that luckily he was caught by the adept County DA, sent to prison for a token term and the concourse renamed to something more appropriate...joey

B:)...Let's hope we gain more than we loose, or at least break even. Considering it is being built by the Natl Govt, it may be named the Gloria Macapagal Arroyo International Airport. How would you like them apples? :(...joey

-<GEC348>-...wrong! Since Mike has ruled that we not venture into that realm of discussion on pain of excommunication from this board, I will not go there! As a journalist, Mike would like to be able to return back home someday. Let's honor his wishes. I have enough problems with the regime in power here in the US than to delve into what to me are foreign problems.

My reply to Glen with the example in the last paragraph should suffice. I am more curious as to how they expect to build that proposed bridge between Mactan and Jetafe than what happened to all those journalists who have passed under her watch. Besides, most of my relatives still live in Bohol and I can't bring any shame and scandal to the family anymore than I've brought already :-X...joey

As explained by Sgt. Joey on aviation point of view, the main purpose is an alternate landing for Mactan. Therefore it should be named "Mactan International Airport II".

Therefore, why has our local officials feel so victorious while the grant is meant for serving the interest of other province.

My question is, who will spend for the enourmous task of maintenance. Is it the Bohol Treasury or the National Government? Obviously, the cost of maintenance would be higher than the economic gain it would generate. If we have to spend for its maintainance, it would be a big zinc hole for Bohol Economy just for the service of Cebu.
There is no death, there is the Force

There are things that meant more than what you say...they are things that you do...

sgt.joey, hmm, apples looks so and so. But it looks like she's the one who's workin on it, so I guess, it will be to her credit.
