On June 25, the tallest general aviation control tower in the U.S. was dedicated at Front Range Airport, Colo. The structure, operated under the FAA’s contract tower program, stands more than 5,596 feet msl and nearly 200 feet agl. Airport officials believe the tower will be an inducement for business jet operators who do not typically use uncontrolled airports. Following a controller training and shakedown period this month, the tower is expected to be fully operational by August 1.
