The Fairfield County Board of County Commissioners and the Fairfield County Airport
Authority (referred to collectively in this document as FCAA) are now accepting proposals
for individuals and/or entities to perform Fixed Base Operations (FBO) and airport
manager duties at the Fairfield County Airport (KLHQ).
The Fairfield County Airport is a county-owned, general aviation airport with a 5,004” X
75’ lighted runway. At the Airport, there are 72 modern t-hangar bays, six 50 x 50
Box/Corporate hangar bays, a terminal building, maintenance hangar, two corporate
hangar buildings, and the Historical Aircraft Squadron Museum Building. Currently, there
are hangars available for occupancy, this has been the trend for the last year. The county
owns and manages the fuel farm and a Jet A fuel truck, selling aviation fuel at competitive
rates. The Airport hosts flight training (fix and rotary wing) and maintenance services.

recreational air transportation.
3. Ensuring courteous and timely service to airport tenants, aviation travelers, and

upon by the FCAA and the selected party. The evaluation of the proposals shall be made
by Airport Board members and County representatives who will comprise a proposal
review team who will use the attached evaluation form.
