The Roanoke Regional Airport Commission, owner and operator of the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, was created through an act of the Virginia General Assembly in 1987. It is an independent subdivision of the state, financially independent and deriving none of its revenues from local taxes.
The Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport is governed by a five-member Commission Board, with each member being appointed to a four year term. Three of the Commission members are appointed by the Roanoke City Council and two by the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors.
