ABOUT BOCA RATON AIRPORT (BCT)

Every Seat is First Class at Boca Raton Airport

Located in the beautiful city of Boca Raton, the Boca Raton Airport is one of the premier general aviation facilities in the Southeast. Situated off of I-95, midway between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, the Airport’s convenient location puts you just minutes from business centers, arts and entertainment, shopping and beaches.

Easy access, advanced infrastructure, and extensive amenities are among the many reasons countless pilots, travelers, and charters choose the Airport for their aviation needs. The Airport averages over 60,000 operations annually, including private aviation, corporate travel, and air taxi operations. Including single engine, multi engine, and helicopters, nearly 300 aircraft are based at the Airport.

Airport Infrastructure and Amenities

A true asset for the State of Florida, the Airport encompasses 214 acres between Spanish River Boulevard and Glades Road. The Airport’s runway 5/23 is 6,276 feet long and 150 feet wide, with a full-length 40-foot wide parallel taxiway.

To maintain safe and organized air traffic, there is an FAA Contract Tower located on the field. The Tower is open daily from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM, and manned with a team of highly trained, professional air traffic controllers.

Making air travel as easy as possible, two full-service Fixed Based Operators (FBOs) are located at the Airport. Each FBO offers a range of amenities, such as fueling, ground handling, aircraft storage, conference rooms, catering, and limousine service.

In 2017, the Airport will have an onsite Customs and Border Protection facility, enabling international flights to fly directly into the Boca Raton Airport instead of first stopping at another airport to go through customs. By eliminating this stop before arrival, the number of low altitude flights will be greatly decreased, which enhances safety for pilots, passengers, and individuals on the ground in and around the Airport.

A Self-Sustaining General Aviation Facility

The Airport is completely self-sustaining, receiving no local, county, or state property or sales taxes. All funds for operations and maintenance come from BRAA revenue generated through land leases and fuel flow fees paid solely by users of the Airport.

Capital improvements or development programs are funded through a combination of BRAA revenue and grants from both the Federal Aviation Administration and the Florida Department of Transportation, which are comprised of fees collected through a gas tax levied on users of airports throughout the state.
