Utah’s Heber City has issued an RFP for a second FBO at its publicly owned Heber City Municipal Airport-Russ McDonald Field (HCR). The airport, located in the heart of the state’s ski country, 40 minutes from Salt Lake City and 20 minutes from Park City, is currently served by OK3 Air. That FBO has received criticism from users in the past due to its pricing.
According to the announcement, the airport authority seeks to “improve the products and services available to light general aviation users and introduce competition for airport services.” The city is offering a vacant, more-than nine-acre plot on the southwest side of the field for development.
With a 6,900-foot runway, the airport, which has 110 based aircraft, sees a wide variety of traffic, ranging from gliders to business jets, and is home to the local chapter of the Commemorative Air Force.
