The Defiance County Airport Authority has received a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to construct a fence and gate on Airport Road, stopping all non-aviation vehicles from entering the hangar area, apron and runway. If you lease or own hangar space or believe you need access to the airport you will need to receive a gate pass code from Tony Saxton once the fencing is completed. The FAA also granted funds to the airport for maintenance on the runway, sealing cracks and fixing specific areas. Maintenance may limit access to the runway on certain days as this project is completed. Currently, the project is planned for the week of September 19, 2011.
