Airport Advisory Commission

The Airport Advisory Commission (AAC), was established by the Archuleta County Commissioners, Resolution 2005-10 in March of 2005. The AAC acts in an advisory capacity to the Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) and the Airport Manager in matters relating to the Airport including: 

  • Review of Capital Improvement Project (CIP) and Airport Operating Budget annually. 
  • Assist the Airport Manager when requested in the interpretation of rules, regulations, policies and procedures. 
  • Report to the BoCC when necessary on issues affecting the Airport. 
  • Perform any duties and responsibilities requested by the BoCC and/or Airport Manager which may be beneficial for the safe, efficient, and self-sufficient operation of the Airport. 

The AAC is composed of nine members, five of whom are voting members recommended by the AAC and approved by the BoCC. The remaining four are the County Manager, the Airport Manager, the Town of Pagosa representative and the Fixed Base Operator (FBO) representative, each of whom are non-voting ex-officio members. All members are residents of Archuleta County. Members serve without compensation. 

The five voting AAC members are chosen for their experience with aviation flight operations, airport operations and maintenance, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, and Colorado and National aviation organizations. The voting members include: Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and two members-at-large. 

AAC meetings are held in November and December. Specially called meetings are held when the AAC determines a need. All meetings are open to the public and conducted in accordance with the Colorado Open Meetings Law.
