How is Contra Costa County Airports marketing itself to remain competitive in the General Aviation airport market?

Airports staff is working on a series of planned informational videos to inform the general public about the benefits provided by Buchanan Field and Byron Airports and encourage pilots and prospective tenants to consider basing their aircraft at the Airports. The first video, Touch Down in the Bay Area, was completed in late 2014 and the second video, Learning to Fly, was completed in 2016. Learning to Fly focused on the process of earning a pilot’s license, and the various services and programs based at Contra Costa County Airports that make that goal easier to attain. Airports staff is also constantly improving the website to improve usability and functionality, including news and event features that users may subscribe to and remain apprised of current issues and events at the Airports. Airports staff has convened the Economic Development Incentive Program, a working group of the Airports’ stakeholders, to help prioritize projects and programs that will best market the Buchanan Field and Byron Airport.
