posted on 7th November 2018 by Justin Burns

Utah’s Heber Valley Airport has issued an RFP for a second FBO and the local government is seeking proposals to construct one.

The airport, formerly known as Heber City Municipal Airport – Russ McDonald Field (the airport) is located in the heart of the state’s ski country, 40 minutes from Salt Lake City and 20 minutes from Park City, is currently served by OK3 Air.

The authority said: “Proposals are wanted from entities to develop, build, and operate a second fixed base operator (“FBO”) on an undeveloped parcel of approximately 9.5 acres at the airport.”

The airport authority added that it seeks “improve the products and services available to light general aviation users and introduce competition for airport services” and “increase revenues by generating additional income from currently vacant airport property”.

The airport has a 6,900-foot runway and has 110 based aircraft, incuding many business jets.
