Airport Maintenance

Bishop International Airport's Maintenance Department helps keep all of the facilities on our airport campus in great shape. They also play a major role in making sure our runways are clear and safe for the takeoff and landing of aircraft. They maintain the entire Airport Terminal, the airfield, the T-Hangars, and other airport buildings including the car rental facilities and the AirPark.

Our Maintenance team also takes care of snow removal. During inclement weather, they remain on site, working around the clock to keep the facility open to passengers and air traffic alike.

The Maintenance department also has a full-time mechanice who is responsible for maintaining all vehicles and equipment associated with the airport. These items include: Administration vehicles, all of the maintenance equipment, plus the Safety Department vehicles (including all of the Fire and Rescue trucks as well as the Police vehicles).
