airport in 2000, the Thomas Wathen Foundation has initiated a
number of upgrades and refinements to the airport.
They repaved the runway, paved a significant amount of taxiway,
cleared brush, painted old buildings and torn down a number of
other old buildings. In their place they have erected 12 new

busy schedule for activities designed to attract young people to
aviation. They also co-hosts several Open Houses in the course of a
year, appealing to sport, vintage and general aviation pilots.
