Sky Acres Airport
Sky Acres Airport's (Lagrangeville, NY) beginnings can be traced back to 1956, when Doug Cochran bought his first plane, a Cessna 172, and needed a place to land it. For the next 8 years much hard work ensued, with countless sacrifices from his wife and 6 children. He converted his farm and barn into a runway and facilities with the vision of aviation enthusiasts one day coming together to share his love of flight. In 1964, the initial seed that was sown and diligently cultivated finally bore fruit and his dream was realized: Sky Acres Airport. As legend has it, Herb Styles was the first aviator to land a plane at the airport. He christened Runway 35 with his single-engine Piper Comanche. He and his family purchased Sky Acres Airport in 1976 and they've owned it ever since. In 1995, the runway underwent an overhaul and was improved to FAA standards under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP). The runway was enlarged and resurfaced to its current 60' by 3,828' dimensions. The parallel taxiway, and runway 17, were also extended. There are now 3 secondary parking ramps that can accommodate turbine and jet aircraft.
On-site services include a 24/7 self-service fueling station, aircraft maintenance and repairs, hangar leasing and sales as well as a café that serves breakfast and lunch.
