A Resolution to Award a Contract for the Lease and Operation of a
Fixed Based Operator Concession at the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport
The Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Committee has developed a plan to modify
the operating agreement for the Airport.
The plan provides for the County to manage public facilities at the
airport and to lease space and contract with a Fixed Base Operator (FBO)
to provide aviation support services such as: repair and maintenance of
aircraft, aircraft charters and sales and flight instruction on a
non-exclusive basis. Portions
of the existing buildings are leased for these purposes.
In addition, the agreement states that the contractor shall provide
support services throughout the year such as: radio support, aircraft
assistance and refueling, and customary support services to airport users.
The Airport Committee and County will be responsible for the
overall management of the public facilities at the airport and will
monitor FBO operations. The
agreement has been negotiated with Tracey Corporation under the provisions
of an existing lease and operating agreement.
It provides a five-year term and a five-year renewal subject to
good faith negotiation of the terms and conditions for renewal. The recommended
agreement is attached.
Airport Committee has developed and reviewed the lease and recommends
Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors
adoption of the attached resolution.
Financial Impacts Analysis
agreement requires additional operating expenses from the County for items
such as the maintenance of the County owned t-hangars and maintenance of
airport grounds and facilities. These
expenses will be offset from the income generated by the lease of
facilities. It is anticipated
that the revised relationship will provide additional funds to the County
to match improvement grants and continue airport improvements.
Expenses and Income are provided through a separate fund under the
existing financial policies of the County.
