April 2007 News: Some members of SFAT were recently discussing the idea of joining Ban Thi Airport with Nok airport (by extending Ban Thi's runway) to make them both one airport. Since the airports are so close, this would be an excellent way to increase safety and promote General Aviation in Thailand. If Ban Thi and Nok were joined, then this would create the largest airpark in all of Asia. SFAT and its members are very active in promoting General Aviation and Aviation Safety in Thailand.
