Armstrong Consultants, Inc. is a professional consulting engineering firm specializing exclusively in airports. We offer exceptional airport planning, engineering, and construction administrative services to all types of airports ranging from small rural general aviation strips to business jet executive airports, commercial service airports, and military airfields.

Since 1973, Armstrong has brought an unmatched level of expertise, commitment, and perspective to the field of aviation. Our firm delivers innovative solutions to today’s most pressing airport challenges.

Adhering to our founding principles, the firm’s corporate culture is focused on client service, technical excellence, and professional integrity. With every task of every project, we are committed to producing results that enhance airports and build economic development.

Our firm’s history of successful on-budget, on-schedule performance is supported by the completion of more than 1,200 airport improvement projects at over 130 airports throughout the western United States. In an environment of tightening budgets, complex technical requirements, and heightened scrutiny, our project management procedures keep pace with increasingly demanding service requirements. This proven process allows our project teams to avoid ballooning costs and schedule slippages that could ultimately have an impact on airport projects.

As a professional services firm serving the aviation industry exclusively, we work across three FAA Regions and seven Airports District Offices. That experience and knowledge has attributed to our partnering with several clients to build modern new airports from the ground up. Our airport professionals plan not only for the efficient management of current capacity, but also build scenarios in each Airport Master Plan to address future advances in sustainable design, aviation, and aerospace technologies, and environmental compliance, to name a few.

Armstrong is employee-owned, which gives us the flexibility to put our clients first and the freedom to carve our own path. That range produces engineering solutions that improve airport safety and efficiency and guide revenue enhancement.
