About Us

In the Beginning:

The airport was started in the mid 1980's. If anyone has any more history on it please send me the webmaster an email with some details and I'll add it to the site.

The Growing Years:

The Airpark originally had just a grass runway but sometime after development a resident drug dealer with a big twin got stuck in a soggy runway and offered the Board of Directors to pave the runway for free. Of course they agreed to it and he paved 3400 feet of runway for the Airpark. Of course he eventually got caught. Later on some local residents all chipped in to put runway lights in and we had a small beacon put up on a local property owners lot. Rob McGuire donated the first set of LED runway lights real airport runway end light fixtures. We recently purchased a new larger beacon and a new forty foot tower and erected it all near the landing community center.

Where we're going:

We have been investigating an instrument approach for the airport and other improvements.
