Maintenance Improvements at Airport
Quite a few maintenance improvements have taken place at the Airport since Spring 2021 started.
Staff selected a different mowing provider, who staff is very pleased with—additional projects have been added without an increase in the mowing budget.
Three hangars, which house 16 planes, received new paint jobs and others were pressure washed. Airport Authority members commented at their September meeting, held at the Airport, that the pressure washed hangars looked like they had been freshly painted. Hangar door maintenance is receiving more proactive focus. Hangars are also being taken off the old well and septic system and being placed on Mount Airy public water and sewer lines. Fiber optic lines are also being installed, given tenants better access to WiFi.
A new, taller fence with black-colored paint was installed between the terminal and fueling area, providing a sharper, more professional impression for pilots entering the terminal building.
The Airport’s weather station is awaiting delivery for parts that will upgrade the device.
