Brooksville-Tampa Bay Regional Airport (BKV) has an almost-new, state-of-the-art air traffic control tower. Since 2012, professional air traffic controllers who are certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, have directed air traffic to BKV’s two active runways, one 7,000 feet and the other 5,000 feet.
BKV is proud to be part of the FAA’s Contract Air Traffic Control Tower program. This program has provided essential air traffic control services to the flying public since 1982. Currently, the program has 251 contract towers in 46 states and 4 US territories. This represents 45 percent of all control towers in the U.S. In addition, federal contract towers handle approximately 25 percent of control tower aircraft operations for about 10 percent of FAA's budget to operate all control towers in the U.S. The program has been endorsed by the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. Office of the Inspector General.
Robinson Aviation, Inc. (RVA) has been contracted by the FAA to operate BKV’s air traffic control tower.
