Aviation Advisory Committee

The Aviation Advisory Committee (AAC) was established in 1977 to provide advice and recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on aviation issues related to the Contra Costa County Airports. The AAC works to advance aviation while giving those community members living and working near the Airports a chance to stay informed on Airport matters as well as voice their opinions and concerns. The AAC also provides a forum for vetting policy matters related to Buchanan Field and Byron Airports.
