The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) dedicated the new $23.7 million, state-of-the-art airport traffic control tower at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport on February 7, 2012. The new tower provides air traffic controllers with better airfield views and the latest radar and communications technology, ensuring they will continue to provide the safest, most efficient service to flights in and out of Broomfield.
“The new tower demonstrates the FAA’s commitment to aviation safety and to modernizing the air traffic control system in Colorado,” said FAA Acting Administrator Michael Huerta. “Investing in new air traffic control facilities is a key component of the FAA’s Next Generation Air Traffic Control system.”
NextGen is a comprehensive overhaul of the National Airspace System designed to make air travel more convenient, dependable and to ensure flights are safe, secure and hassle-free.
The new facility includes a 124-foot-tall air traffic control tower topped by a 525-square-foot tower cab, which features four air traffic controller positions and one supervisor position. A 6,000-square-foot, single-story base building houses training rooms, administrative offices and equipment rooms.
Rocky Mountain Metro air traffic controllers handled 110,509 takeoffs and landings in 2011. The airport primarily serves general aviation traffic.
