FROM THE MANAGER
As I sit at my desk, with a truly breath-taking view, I remain amazed how lucky I am to have such a great job. Aviation is a wonder all on its own, but when you add the amazing people in, well, I cannot imagine ever doing anything else. The people are as diverse as the aircraft. It is a lot like pets and their owners. You can usually match the person to the aircraft. Each aircraft is tailored to the personality of its owner. From sleek and all business to the funky and fun, they all have a place here.
This time of year we all (hopefully) slow down a little bit and remember the joy in our lives. I'm thankful for all of you and remain honored to serve you. If there is ever anything we can help you with, please just ask. You are the reason we are here.
We have two offices available for rent. An 11x9 and a 10x17 located in the main FBO building. If you have an aviation related business and are looking for some office space, drop by and I will be happy to give you a tour.
The Airport has completed the install of several of the solar powered taxiway lights. I had the opportunity to check them out and observed no difference in the color or intensity from the hardwired lights already active. A very nice improvement.
Be safe and have a very Merry Christmas!
Brad Lamb General Manager

Tango Flight is a high school class that provides students with the tools to build and fly a two-seat airplane over the course of a school year. Students learn about aviation and aerospace engineering as they work with local businesses. Students can even earn college credit. The class is an educational partnership between Project Lead the Way, high schools, the non-profit Tango Flight and local businesses. It provides a college-level curriculum with practical, hands-on experience building an airplane alongside seasoned aviation mentors. Students in the class may go on to pursue further education and careers in engineering, manufacturing or as pilots. For more information, visit their website or donate here.
Two offices available!
Conveniently located near the ATC Tower, the available space has a shared entrance and access to a breakroom.
