  • Utah’s Skypark Airport has reopened after the complete rebuild of its 4,700-foot-long runway that began on September 8. The $1.3 million project, funded by the state and the airport, features a new LED lighting system and precision approach path indicators (PAPI).

    “We couldn’t be happier with the result,” said Chris Volzer, manager of the airport-owned FBO. “Our customers will enjoy smooth landings and takeoffs with more advanced lighting systems, making flying safer and more efficient.”

    Located just 10 minutes from Salt Lake City and a half hour from the ski slopes of Park City, the Avfuel-branded FBO specializes in quick turns and offers a two-level terminal with passenger and crew lounges, a 15-seat a/v equipped conference room, WiFi, pilot shop, crew cars and available car rental. Its 9,600-sq-ft heated hangar can accommodate light jets. The facility charges no ramp or landing fees, and even waives overnight parking charges with fuel purchase. Full-service fueling is available during normal business hours, with self-serve jet-A and avgas on tap 24 hours a day.
