Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

Corporate Aviation

 

The Little GA secret that even Wikipedia does not talk about to date (January 7, 2012)!

 

 

The City

 

 

The cities of Dallas and Fort Worth are the anchor cities of the Metroplex* (Dallas-Arlington-Fort Worth). Dallas and its suburbs have one of the highest concentrations of corporate headquarters in the United States. As such, one of the largest industries in the Metroplex is conducting business. The Metroplex also contains the largest Information Technology industry base in the state (often referred to as Silicon Prairie or the Telecom Corridor), owing to the large number of corporate IT projects and the presence of numerous electronics, computing and telecommunication firms such as Texas Instruments, HP Enterprise Services, Dell Services, i2, AT&T, Ericsson, CA and Verizon in and around Dallas. On the other end of the business spectrum, and on the other side of the Metroplex, the Texas farming and ranching industry is based in Fort Worth. According to the Dallas Business Journal's 2006 Book of Lists, American Airlines is the largest employer in the Metroplex. Several major defense manufacturers, including Lockheed Martin, Bell Helicopter Textron, and Raytheon, maintain significant operations in the Metroplex. ExxonMobil, the #1 corporation on the Fortune 500 listings, is headquartered in Irving, Texas.

180 feet above the south end of the ramp at 15:30 on Super Bowl Sunday 2011. There were 51 aircraft on the ramp at that time with the 52nd and last aircraft to arrive taxing in to take the last available spot on the ramp that can be seen in the upper right hand side of the photo. An additional 21 aircraft were parked at two other locations on the airport designated as overflow parking during our planning for Super Bowl. DFW Corporate Aviation handled 348 operations between Friday and Monday that weekend. In 2011 they handled over 6900 operations, an increase of 18% over the previous year.

 


The Metroplex overlooks mostly prairie land with a few rolling hills dotted by man-made lakes cut by streams, creeks and rivers surrounded by forest land. The Metroplex is situated in the Texas blackland prairies region, so named for its fertile black soil found especially in the rural areas of Collin, Dallas, Ellis, Hunt, Kaufman, and Rockwall counties.

Many areas of Denton, Johnson, Parker, Tarrant, and Wise counties are located in the Fort Worth Prairie region of North Texas, which has less fertile and more rocky soil than that of the Texas blackland prairie; most of the rural land on the Fort Worth Prairie is ranch land. A large onshore natural gas field, the Barnett Shale, lies underneath this area; Denton, Tarrant and Wise counties feature many natural gas wells. Continuing land use change results in scattered crop fields surrounded by residential or commercial development.

South of Dallas and Fort Worth is a line of rugged hills that goes north to south about 15 miles (24 km) that looks similar to the Texas Hill Country 200 miles (320 km) to the south.

 

The DFW area falls in the CFa (Humid, Subtropical) region of the K?pen climate classification system which is is a climate zone characterized by hot, humid summers and mild to cool winters.

During times of construction please follow the detour signs for Corporate Aviation or call 972-574-8899 for more details.

 

From DFW's North Entrance
 
From either I-635, State Highway 114 or State Highway 121, exit to the north entrance to the Airport. Please note that due to construction at the north end of the airport the Remote North Parking Entrance will be relocated on January 8 and the South Bound Service Road Ramp from State Highway 121 (aka South International Parkway) will be closed on January 8th. To access the Southbound Service Road to Corporate Aviation or the new North Remote Parking entrance the following detours will be in place:
  • From Southbound SH 121 take SH 114 West and exit Texan Trail. Take Texan Trail to Airfield Drive eastbound to the South Bound Service Road.
  • From Eastbound SH 114 take Texan Trail to Airfield Drive and continue east to the South Bound Service Road.
  • From Westbound SH 114 take Freeport Exit south to Airfield Drive. Go west on Airfield drive to the South Bound Service Road.
NOTE: Access to DFW Airport from southbound SH 121 and westbound SH 114 will be unaffected. Traffic exiting at the DFW Airport?s north entrance will still be able to exit the airport using existing ramps.

Once established on the South Bound Service Road (bypassing the Airport?s entry toll plazas) at the first traffic light, Crossunder #1, turn left, heading east. You will then arrive at a stop sign marking the northbound Service Road intersection with Crossunder #1.
Proceed straight through the intersection, and you will now be on East 16th Street, which will turn into North 24th Ave and is the road to the DFW Corporate Aviation facility.
 

From DFW's South Entrance
  • From State Highway 183 or State Highway 360, exit to the south entrance to the Airport.
  • Exit onto the Service Road heading northbound (bypassing the Airport?s entry toll plazas).
  • Proceed north for about 4.5 miles on the Service Road, driving through three traffic lights and past Terminals E, C and A on your right.
  • After passing the American Airlines Cargo facility, take the first right turn at Crossunder #1 / East 16th Street, heading east. You will now be on East 16th Street, which will turn into North 24th Ave and is the road to the DFW Corporate Aviation facility.
