Airport Advisory Board

About the Board

The vision of the Chesterfield County Airport is for a safe, well maintained general aviation reliever airport where people desire to work, visit, conduct business and operate or base an aircraft. With the goal of preserving a balance between recreational, corporate and other aviation activities, Chesterfield County desires a community that has pride in its airport and recognizes its economic value. Expansion of the airport will be completed with the primary goal of enhancing airport operations in a manner that allows for continued close relationships with business and residential users as well as the surrounding community.
