Whether you are a corporate pilot, fly your own plane or a businessperson looking for convenient access, Chesterfield County Airport (FCI) is the executive gateway into or out of the Greater Richmond Virginia area. Business and personal fliers have long preferred FCI for its convenience and comprehensive personal attention - real advantages worth considering when selecting a destination airport.
A First Choice Central Location
Chesterfield County Airport is located in the fast growing I-95 corridor that runs from Florida to New York and New England. Interstate 95 is just five miles to the east of the airport. The Chesterfield County Government Center is less than 2 miles southeast of the airport and downtown Richmond is only 12 miles to the north. Located at the interchange of Route 10 and Route 288, FCI is at the center of a triangle formed by the cities of Richmond, Petersburg and Hopewell. This central location makes it easy to get to or from your meeting or destination without hassle or delay.
An Aviation Reliever Airport for RIC
FCI is designated by the FAA as an official general aviation reliever airport for Richmond International Airport (RIC) and boasts amenities commensurate with that status. For instance, you will find a 5,500-foot runway, one precision and three non-instrument approaches that includes a new Instrument Landing System (ILS) and associated lighting that insures all weather operations. Business and private flyers alike have preferred FCI airport for its convenience and service. Hangar space is generally available from T-hangars to large corporate hangars; and for those wishing to base an aircraft, hangar sites are also available for lease at reasonable rates.
Comprehensive Aviation Services
The Chesterfield County Airport delivers comprehensive services without the congestion, expense or delays common at large commercial service airports. We can accommodate aircraft from corporate jets to single engine general aviation aircraft and provide pilots and passengers with personal services and comforts to feel right at home. We have a well appointed pilots lounge, flight planning room adjacent to overnight crew quarters and office and conference rooms are available on a scheduled basis. We invite you to take a close look at FCI airport. For information and discounted services please contact the airport manager, Thomas Trudeau.
