In 1985, the Board of Aviation Commissioners for the City of Warsaw assumed the responsibility of operating and maintaining the Warsaw Municipal Airport. All generated revenues from fuel sales, hangar rent, and land leases go to the Aviation general fund, which funds the airport's annual budget. With the realization that federal and state funding was becoming limited, except for major improvement projects, the need for local involvement became necessary.
The Airport Board, management and staff realize the lifeblood of Warsaw Municipal Airport are the corporate tenants on the field, with 95-percent of the airport’s revenue derived from fuel sales to these corporate flight departments. There is a close working relationship with each of the flight departments to make Warsaw Municipal Airport a community asset helping these corporations expand their businesses nationally and internationally, while also providing an excellent economic climate within our county.
