Desert Aire Airport District
More Than An Airport
The Desert Aire Airport District extends well beyond the Desert Aire Regional Airport (M94) property line. In fact, the airport district boundary is Washington State Highway SR 243 to the east, Grant County Public Utility District land to the west and south, and State Road 26 to the north as shown on the picture to the left.
This airport district is also unique in that it is a corporate municipality, i.e a city (RCW 14.08.290). The Community of Desert Aire which lies within the airport district boundary is governed by the Desert Aire Home Owners Association.
In addition this airport district is governed by an elected three member Board of Commissioners. This board of commissioners in turn appoint the Desert Aire Regional Airport Manager.
