The Natchitoches Regional Airport lies adjacent to the NSU Campus, immediately across Chaplin’s Lake. Since its major runway requires that aircraft cross university property and buildings during take-off and landing, emergency plans are necessary in the event of an incident involving aircraft.
This includes aircraft (military, private, and commercial aircraft) as well as helicopters, and crop-dusting aircraft that utilize the facility.
