The Federal Aviation Administration announced on Friday, March 22 that the tower at Fulton County Airport at Brown Field will remain open. 

Last month the Fulton County Airport Tower was listed among possible closures due to budget cuts resulting from the Federal Sequestration.

"We communicated our concerns to the Federal Aviation Administration and are pleased to learn of their decision to keep the tower open," confirmed Douglas Barrett, Fulton County Airport Manager. "The FAA has affirmed this critical need for our airport and the potential impact on airport safety and the communities surrounding it.”
