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

to plans for constructing another five hangars.
In addition to improving the grounds and architecture of the
airport, the Wathen Foundation has developed an extensive list and
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.
