Air Traffic Control

The Georgetown Municipal Airport (KGTU) is a towered reliever general aviation airport supporting the flying public in central Texas. We are open 24/7 to all flight activity. During the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m daily, all flight operations will be under control of the tower.

Operations outside the Tower Hours are to be conducted using the Fly Friendly Program.  We would like to remind all pilots that we are in a Noise Sensitive Area and would ask that they take that into consideration when operating from Georgetown Municipal Airport.

  • Tower frequency is 120.225
  • Ground is 119.125
  • ATIS is 118.600

Before any pedestrian, vehicle or aircraft is allowed to enter the aircraft movement area (areas are designated on the map below), the GTU Ground must be contacted for permission.

Any vehicle that seeks access to an Aircraft Movement Area must be equipped with a flashing yellow light and an Air Band Transceiver tuned to GTU Ground.

Non-Movement Areas – aprons, helipads, aircraft parking areas, and taxi lanes not under the control of the control tower.

Airport Operations Count

Operations counts at airport consist of the total number of Take-off + Landings.  A Touch-and-Go counts as both a Take-Off and Landing.  This operations data is used when developing airport master planning, conducting airport environmental research, forecasting economic impact, adjusting funding, measuring aviation performance. These numbers are counted by the Air Traffic Controllers during the hours our Tower is open (07:00 AM – 10:00 PM)
