From the Town of Leesburg – This morning, Town of Leesburg officials dedicated the new Instrument Landing System (ILS) at the Leesburg Executive Airport.  Funding for the Instrument Landing System, which became operational on March 10, 2011, was provided by the Federal Aviation Administration, through the efforts of U.S. Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA).
