Q. Where is your pet quarantine/where do I pick up my puppy/how do I contact the puppy transport company at the Airport?
A. The Northern Colorado Regional Airport does NOT have a pet quarantine area and does NOT have any businesses operating here that transports animals. Please do your research before sending funds to someone claiming to have a pet or puppy to send to you. If you have already sent funds and are no longer able to contact the “breeder” or “seller” then you may be a victim of theft, please contact your local police department to file a report for them to investigate. You can read more about identifying puppy scams at the ASPCA and the BBB websites.
Q. When does the Wings of Freedom Tour return?
A. The Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom Tour returns July 14-16, 2017. Their full schedule for our Airport can be found on their site at: www.collingsfoundation.org/event/ft-collins-co
Q. Where is your weather data; what was the rainfall yesterday; what was the wind gust 8 months ago; etc…?
A. The Airport does not manage or store weather data, our AWOS (Automated Weather Observation System) is owned and managed by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).
Q. Where is your lost and found?
A. Please contact our FBO, jetCenter at 970-667-2574.
Q. How do I get my kid or myself set up with those introductory flights?
A. You can contact the Fort Collins EAA Chapter 515 Young Eagles program for flight experiences and other flight related activities for kids and the EAA Eagle Flights program for adults.
Q. Can I set up an Airport tour/field trip for my class; troop; kids; home-school?
A. Sure! However please note this is Airport Operations & Administration. We do not have aircraft or hangars at our disposal. We provide maintenance for operations safety and security for the Airport, such as runway, gates, and grounds maintenance as well as all the administrative and governing tasks such as grant management and budgeting. If you do want a tour of Airport operations, which includes administrative tasks like budgets, Commission meetings, and Airport grounds maintenance please contact us at Airport@cityofloveland.org.
For field trip/tours that actually relate to Aircraft itself, we suggest you contact the following businesses that operate on our Airport, jetCenter, Leading Edge, Colorado Contrails, and/or Front Range Helicopters to see about a possible partnership for your event. They would have the resources available that actually relate to aircraft itself. You can find their contact information on our business directory page at: www.flynoco.com/home/about/business-directory.
Another great resource, especially if you are looking for flight experiences would be to contact the Fort Collins EAA Chapter 515 at: www.515.eaachapter.org
Another note is that we are Class E airspace, which means we currently do not have an active tower; however, we were awarded the Remote Tower project. So near the last quarter of 2017 or some time in 2018 we will have an active Remote Air Traffic Control Tower that may be toured; however, tours will be set up at prearranged intervals. If you are interested in updates on this project and the tour schedule once it’s created, follow us on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter, updates will also be provided to local media outlets as they occur.
Q. Can I rent your runway for photos/events/non-aeronatuical use?
A. The Airport is not able to close its runway for non-aeronautical events. Closing our only runway would have significant impact on those who rely on this facility for air transportation needs.
Q. Who is your amazing photographer?
A. Jay Dixon and Airport Staff.
