The airport is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The airport is supported by the local FBO (fixed base operator) Summit Air which fuels and hangars aircraft. North Coast Air Care is based at the Akron Flight facility since May 2000. It maintains the general aviation community in performing inspections, maintenance and repairs to all aircraft from small Cessnas to corporate jets.
