Our vision is to serve as the aviation hub for the Southwest Desert Triangle by providing the highest levels of service to our customers.

Our Mission Statement: "The Yuma County Airport Authority’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient and customer focused airport to serve Greater Yuma."

To develop this "Mission Statement" into a reality the Board of Directors adopted the following six "Key Strategies."

1. Provide a full service FBO by either partnering with existing businesses or attracting new businesses.
2. Expand aviation related business (MCAS, general aviation, government, etc.)
3. Promote international airport status and seek scheduled International flights, if feasible.
4. Market the airport
5. Develop strategic plan for growth through prudent use of resources (fiscal responsibility) while focusing on customer service. Stay abreast of community growth and needs by partnering and/or leading with our community for economic development.
6. Develop air freight business through providers such as FedEx, UPS, etc.

We take our Mission Statement to heart. These strategies are the framework around which we identify the goals and objectives you will find in this document. We take care that every contract we sign and every dollar we spend ties back to this framework.

This web site is our actual planning document, it's not just for glitz. We come back to this Strategic Plan on a continuing basis and bring it up to date to make sure that as the world around us changes, our focus on the original Key Strategies remains sound and up to date. You can actually see our progress; the red dots we're still working on; the green ones we've completed.
