Leesburg, VA (November 20, 2019) – The Leesburg Executive Airport will host an open house on Sunday, December 8, 2019. The event will allow local residents the opportunity to learn about the services and equipment used to operate the second busiest General Aviation airport in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions regarding the airport’s day-to-day tasks while representatives from each of the flight schools will be in attendance.
