Commercial Business or "Other"
While we at SOAR do not in any way speak for the County government, in past discussions, there was interest in inviting a commercial aviation entity, flight school, an aviation-associated education program, medical helicopter, or other group that would grow the current airport base and help to keep it alive and well. This airport, like a lot of rural county airports around the nation, has a relatively low amount of traffic in the pattern at any given time, is a non-tower field with a nice long East-West paved runway, and 24/7 100 LL fuel available. These assets make it ideal for primary flight instruction.
It is also located in the heart of the Marcellus shale gas region, only a mile or so from the Waynesburg PA exit of I 79, and would be a great place to build a hangar and locate a corporate King Air or Jet Ranger. Anyone with any interest should contact the county government and request a sit-down discussion. Here is a link to the County's Economic development page:
