The air traffic control tower is operational from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. each day, with extended hours when major special events are held at the stadiums. An Instrument Landing System (ILS) provides a precision approach and two published non-precision approaches are available to assist aircraft operations in inclement weather. Recent construction projects completed include the addition of 1,000 ft. to the Medium Intensity Approach Landing System, (converting the MALSF to MALSR), and installation of a 4,900 ft. x 75 ft. west parallel taxiway.
