Tenant Security Access

Airport security is a high priority for Contra Costa County Airports. Since September 11, 2001, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have implemented various new requirements and protocols for airports around the country. 

Airport security is continually re-evaluated and improved upon at the County Airports to maintain the highest level of security possible. Recent security measures have been implemented to protect pilots and the community:

  • Reinforced perimeter fencing with the addition of 3 strand barb wire top and cipher locks on pedestrian gates
  • Increased Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) security cameras (with plans for additional cameras)
  • Increased nighttime security patrols in collaboration with Contra Costa County Sheriff
  • Enhanced Security Signage

All persons that wish to be granted access to Buchanan Field and/or Byron Airports are required to review and complete the Airport Access Control Card Packet, which includes the following:
