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.
Q. Where is your lost and found?
A. Please contact our FBO, Jetcenter at 970-667-2574.
Q. How do I get my kid set up with those introductory flights?
A. You can contact the Fort Collins Eagles Civil Air Patrol for flight experiences and other flight related activities for kids.
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 our exciting 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 Civil Air Patrol Fort Collins Chapter at: http://www.tvcseagles.com/
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.
