The Remote Tower Project has experienced additional delays due to its innovative nature of being the first in our nation. Unlike the SAAB Remote Tower in Virginia this is a public endeavor which involved FAA oversight on the project planning. Please note this entire project is user funded by fees from aviation fuel and aviation use tax. If the airport were to go with a conventional air traffic control tower the local tax payers would need to come up with $10-$15 million dollars in taxes to fund it. This current model will solve the problem of air traffic control with no cost to the local tax payer. Once this project is certified by the FAA this will provide the blueprint for Remote Towers for other airports across our nation.
Please see the Colorado Remote Tower Project website hosted by the Colorado State Division of Aeronautics for more information.
