Airport Authority


The Helena Regional Airport was established at its current location in 1928 and was governed by a City-County Board. In 1993, through a Joint Resolution of the City of Helena and Lewis & Clark County, the Helena Regional Airport Authority was formed. The Airport Authority consists of a seven-member commission; members are appointed by the City and County Commissions.
