A Customs Feasibility Study was conducted prior to the start of the project and finalized in February, 2014. Customs will be a service for aircraft arriving internationally that are based at or destined for BCT. Currently, international arrivals wishing to land at BCT make an interim stop to clear Customs at other airports on their return home to BCT from their international trip. This increases safety and prevents low altitude return flights to BCT from nearby Customs facilities.
A forecasted 700 annual flights will clear Customs at BCT. This is an average of two flights per day. The Study also forecasts 350 boaters annually will clear Customs paper work at BCT. BCT anticipates that the same aircraft currently using BCT will continue to use the Airport. No significant additional traffic is anticipated.
The Customs and Border Protection Facility will total 4,400 square feet. The facility will be open Thursday through Monday from 10:30a.m. to 6:30p.m.
