Bucks County Airport Authority Information
The Bucks County Airport Authority was formed in 1961 under the provisions of the Municipality Act of 1945 by the County of Bucks, Pennsylvania. The Authority was chartered for the purpose of acquiring, holding, constructing, improving, maintaining, and operating airports and all facilities necessary in such function within the County of Bucks. The Authority's office is located in the Doylestown Airport Administration building.
Doylestown and Quakertown Airports are owned and operated by the Authority. Both facilities are complete with administrative offices, aircraft storage and fueling services. Many area businesses and residents use these two airports. Both airports are investments that pay off in many ways to the county in revenue to area establishments. Further benefits include employment and the flow of new industry and business into Bucks County. Since its inception, the Authority has received over $6 million from federal and state grants for capital improvements at both airports.
All the operations and facilities of these two county airports are overseen and administered by the Bucks County Airport Authority, a five member board. This official group establishes policies, management operations, and functions of both airports. Members are appointed by the Bucks County Commissioners for five year terms. Authority members are Bucks County residents interested in aviation and its future.
