**UPDATE FOR JUNE 21, 2017**

As of Wednesday, June 21, we have nearly finished up on the pour of the main portions of the taxilanes and work is progressing on the trench drains between hangars M and N.  Unfortunately, we experienced supply delays with the trench drain system last week that have added 11 days to the schedule.

We are now targeting Monday, July 10, as the date for completing the taxilanes between hangars M and N.  Consequently, the start-up on the next phase of the project on the taxilanes between L and M is now scheduled to begin July 10 as well.   


I apologize for any inconvenience.  Please feel free to call Larry Peet at 913-715-6005 should you have any questions or concerns.



Weather permitting, here are the estimated dates on the most recent schedule for the Construction around the Northeast Ramp and West T-Hangars.  Please keep in mind the schedule is updated almost daily.

Located at 151st Street and Pflumm Road, between the cities of Olathe and Overland Park, Kansas, Executive Airport is in the heart of Johnson County's economic belt and is the choice for many corporate, business, and general aviation users.

Master Plan:

T-Hangar Evaluation Study:

Pavement Study (draft):

Facilities: The airport is located on approximately 500 acres of land with a 4,100' single runway, parallel taxiways, Federal contract air traffic control tower, and medium intensity airfield lighting. Localizer/DME approaches are available from the north and the south.

Services: In addition to all standard aircraft services, airport businesses offer air charter, aircraft sales, and flight instruction services from smaller single-engine aircraft up to corporate jets.

History: Originally constructed as a Naval auxiliary field during World War II, the airport was deeded to the City of Olathe in 1951 and from the city to Johnson County in 1967. The Board of County Commissioners created the Johnson County Airport Commission to manage, operate, and improve the airports. With over 50,000 annual operations and approximately 210 based aircraft, the airport is the third busiest in the state of Kansas.

Improvements: Improvements to the airport include a new concrete runway and localizer with MALSR lighting system. The west parallel taxiway was reconstructed and a holding bay added to the south end for improved traffic handling.

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) 715-6000 to check availability or email larry.peet@jocogov.org.  View the T-Hangar Waiting List Policy for additional information or download the following documents:  Executive Airport (OJC) Map Layout2015 Rental RatesT-Hangar Waitlist RequestT-Hangar Maintenance Request, or Contact Information Update.
