If all goes as planned Bell hopes to start phasing out pilot training activities at Alliance by late next year.
The new airfield will have three runways, an observation tower and a building for fire equipment, according to city reports.

Yesterday was a good day for those of us who are opposed to the intrusion of Bell Helicopters flying their training missions loud and low over our personal properties.
CBS Channel 11 reporter Jason Allen met some concerned citizens at City Hall in Keller, TX to interview us and to discuss our complaints and concerns about Bell Helicopter/Textron. On the four o’clock news on CBS 11 the piece was run, followed by a shorter segment at five o’clock.
We are hopeful that with this exposure, (which points out exactly the concerns we have regarding safety, noise, and disruption of our previously peaceful neighborhoods), that we can gather much more support from neighbors impacted by Bell Helicopter’s decision to train at Justin and fly from Hurst over many, many homes, businesses, schools, churches, and nursing homes.
