Airport Layout Plan

Facilities: There is a 7,300' main runway with a 5,000' crosswind runway, FAA contract air traffic control tower, Category I instrument landing system, and fire station.

Services: Three full-service fixed base operators on the field provides fuel, lubrication and flight line services for all classes of reciprocating and turbine aircraft, seven days a week. Other services include air charter, aircraft sales, aircraft maintenance and flight training.

History: The airport was originally constructed as a Naval Air Station in the early 1940s and was the continental headquarters of the Naval Air Transport Service (the Navy's in-house airline). The Johnson County Airport Commission acquired the site in 1973 and renamed the facility the Johnson County Industrial Airport. The name was changed to New Century AirCenter in 1995 to better reflect changing times and the advanced technology industries located in New Century Business Park.

Improvements: Recent improvements to airside facilities include replacing a transient ramp, taxiway "L" and the east T-Hangar ramp. In 1998, a new fire station was constructed.

T-Hangars: The County owns and operates a total of 218 T-Hangars at both Johnson County airports. Aircraft owners wanting to rent a T-Hangar should call (913) 715-6004 to check availability or email air[email protected].  View additional information or download the following documents:  T-Hangar Map Layout2021 Rental Rates, T-Hangar Waitlist Policy, T-Hangar Waitlist Request, or T-Hangar Maintenance Request.
