AIRPORT ADMINISTRATION

The Municipal Airport/Wellik Field is owned and operated by the Town of Wickenburg. Miles Johnson, Town Planner, is the Airport Manager and is responsible for the administration of the airport. The Town of Wickenburg contracts with a Fixed Base Operator for the daily operation of the airport including fuel sales and line services.  The FBO offers snacks and other merchandise for sale in the terminal and as available can provide a courtesy car.  Aircraft repair, maintenance, and painting is available from I.A. Certified Aircraft Mechanics. Runway 5-23 is  6100’ in length.  A 1000’ extension was completed in September  2006.  The Airport is an integral element in the local economy.  It serves the local guest ranches and medical treatment facilities. The Chamber of Commerce hosts an annual “FLY IN” and pancake breakfast the last weekend in October, but fly “Out Wickenburg Way” anytime to enjoy the scenery, history, and shopping in this unique high desert community.

Wickenburg Municipal Airport has an airport advisory commission composed of seven members. The commission is chaired by Council Member Dave Lane. He is the elected member of the Town council, appointed by the mayor and subject to the approval of the council. At least five of the citizens must be residents of the Town and all members must live within 10 miles of the Town limits. The council representative serves a two-year term, while citizen members serve staggered three-year terms. The commission acts in an advisory role to the Town council, making recommendations on the use, operation, and development of the airport.

 

Courtesy cars are generally available through the Fixed Base Operator for trips into Town where a number of fine restaurants and unique shops are located.  Rental cars can be arranged.
