General Service and Fuel
- 32 T-hangars that are owned by the City are available for rent. In addition, eight (8) aircraft are located in corporate hangars at the airport. These based aircraft have an estimated aviation-related economic impact of $190,000 per year to the Airport and the community.
- An Automated Weather Observation System, (AWOS), is located on the Airport. This facility provides "real time, on-site" weather conditions at the airport. This information is available to aircraft via the VOR frequency and is a FAA requirement for any Part 135 (on-demand charter operations) operating in or out of the airport. A weather room in the terminal building is available to initiate flight planning procedures. This system consists of a computer screen for on-site conditions, an up-link computer for national and global weather conditions, and a computer text screen for text written forecast information provided by the National Weather Service.
- In an effort to meet the services needed in our increased corporate jet traffic, the airport has tow bar heads to handle Lear Jets, King Airs, Cessna Citations, Falcon 100 series aircraft and other standard models. The airport also has a utility tractor to be used as a tug for the above-mentioned aircraft. A 28 volt diesel Tron Air ground power unit is available. Also, a 28 volt BattPac is available to provide auxiliary power to all types of corporate aircraft, assisting them in cold weather starts, overnight starts, and fuel transferring power needs.
