Leesburg Executive Airport

The Stanley F. Caulkins terminal at Leesburg Executive Airport

The Leesburg Town Council and the Leesburg Executive Airport are scrambling for solutions after the FAA’s sudden announcement that it will end the airport’s remote tower program on June 14.

Leesburg Executive Airport Director Scott Coffman and a representative of Saab reported the story behind this cancelation and presented next steps to council Monday night. Supporters of the remote tower say that if it is removed, the economic and safety impacts on the airport will be significant.
