Franklin County holds special meeting to open Fixed Base Operator bids. Apalachicola Regional Airport (KAAF), Florida.

Franklin County Commissioners held a special meeting yesterday and the Apalachicola Airport Advisory Board will meet in special session on Thursday to open bids from companies interested in taking over as the Fixed base operator at the Airport in Apalachicola.

The FBO provides services at the airport like fueling, hangaring, tie-down and parking, aircraft rental, aircraft maintenance, and flight instruction.

The county commission was scheduled to open the bids during its regular meeting on Tuesday but was unable to because the final date to get the bids in was a holiday and the mail wasn’t running.

Instead the bids were opened yesterday and the bids will then be given to the Airport Advisory Board to consider during its special meeting Thursday night at 6 at the Emergency operations Center.

The county working under a time constraint as the contract with the current Fixed Base Operator ends in February, but the board said it would be willing to extend the existing contract until a new operator is found.
