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 typically comes every July 13-15, 2018. 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 humidity, what was the wind gust 8 months ago; etc…?
A. The Airport does not manage or store weather data. The AWOS (Automated Weather Observation System) is owned, managed, and maintained by the FAA, Federal Aviation Administration or 866-TELL-FAA (866-835-5322) and is meant solely for the use of pilots.
Q. Where is your lost and found?
A. Please contact our FBO, jetCenter at 970-667-2574.
Q. Can I set up an Airport tour/field trip for my class; troop; kids; home-school?
A. Please note this is Airport Operations & Administration. We do not have aircraft or hangars at our disposal. Airport operations provides maintenance for 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 presentation for your group on the Airport’s economic impacts for our region, please contact us at Airport@cityofloveland.org. Please note this presentation is geared more towards high school ages and older.
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, The Flying School (aka 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 limited to 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.
