General Aviation Improvement Plan Moves Forward

After years of extensive environmental planning and community outreach, the Orange County Board of Supervisors awarded long-term leases to two full-service Fixed Base Operators (FBOs) at John Wayne Airport; Clay Lacy Aviation, Inc. for the Northwest Full-Service FBO, and Aviation Consultants, Inc., doing business as ACI Jet, for the Northeast Full-Service FBO. Jay’s Aircraft Maintenance was awarded the limited-service FBO lease located on the Southwest parcel.

New Noise Event Collection and Management System

Viewpoint, a user-friendly platform for submitting noise events, was recently launched at John Wayne Airport, replacing the more labor-intensive email system. The new portal system, which is fully integrated with the Airport’s Noise and Operations Management System (ANOMS), has already proven to be a success. The streamlined system automatically submits noise events, improving consistency and facilitating more efficient data collection.
