    An Economic Engine

    The Waukesha County Airport/Crites Field provides nearly 1,000 jobs that generate more than $24 million in wages and payroll each year for the local community.  The airport is also credited with generating nearly $81 million in revenue for the organizations that use it for aviation, as well as the vendors providing goods and services to them.

    Providing Lifesaving Medical Services

    The Airport is home to many services that benefit the community, including Flight For Life, which is located on site to provide fast response for individuals requiring emergency medical transport. Additionally, several airport tenants participate in Angel Flights, providing transportation for individuals who are in need of life-saving medical procedures and treatment.

    Enhancing Aviation Safety

    The Waukesha County Airport/Crites Field is also a diligent partner with local, state and federal agencies to ensure flight safety standards are in place to protect the public, as well as our customers and tenants. Furthermore, the airport played an integral role in the development of a program by the Waukesha County Technical College to enhance security at our nation’s general aviation airports.

    Additionally, the airport hosts several charitable events, with the help of our tenants, to raise funds for their favorite charities.
