While it may still be known officially as Lewis University Airport (LOT), the Chicago-area airport that has been owned by the Joliet Regional Port District since 1989 is continuing to shed its sleepy former image: the FBO on the field will be doubling hangar space to 42,000 sq ft and adding 11,000 sq ft of office space. The airport, which sees approximately 120,000 operations a year, is home to 15 jets and 10 turboprops. It has a 6,500-foot main runway with 130,000-pound capacity, as well as a 5,700-foot secondary runway. The Chicago-Romeoville FBO is a Phillips 66 Aviation-branded dealer and offers a pilots’ lounge, WSI weather service, Wi-Fi, day rooms, crew car, a conference room and kitchen as well as type I and IV de-icing. It also says it specializes in quick turns.
