The airport leadership is intently interested in enhancing the safety and security of Warsaw Municipal Airport, particularly since 9-11. Access to Aircraft Operation Areas (AOAs) is closely monitored and access is limited to authorized employees and aircraft owners. The airport is an active participant in the AOPA’s Airport Watch program.
An example of the continual effort to make Warsaw Municipal Airport as safe for aviation operations as possible is the airport’s participation in the AAI/Purdue University Wildlife Study. Warsaw Municipal Airport has made its facilities available and contributed significant resources to the project so that the best management practices can be put in place to minimize the negative effects Indiana’s wildlife has on aviation operations on and around the airport. The board and management recently made the decision – at a substantial cost – to forego a significant portion of the airport’s revenue by halting all agricultural operations inside the airport’s perimeter fencing to reduce wildlife attractants such operation inherently entail.
