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)
