Air Traffic Control[edit]

Air traffic controllers at the tower also control the nearby coastguard helicopters.

Future Expansion[edit]

Construction of a taxiway would remove landing delays due to previously landed aircraft taxiing back down the runway. However to do this land adjacent to the airport would need to be purchased.
