Since 1985, the operators of Princeton Airport have opened their doors to visitors (both young and young-at-heart) to let them see and experience the daily operations of the airfield. This summer, Princeton Airport invites the public to free tours during the months of July and August every Tuesday morning. Starting at 10:30 AM, the tours will address the past 107 years of the airport’s history, explore the present day-to-day operations and facilities, as well as take a glimpse into the bright future of Princeton Airport.
As a privately owned public use facility, Princeton Airport provides many services to the Central Jersey area – whether for business or recreation. Among those services include flight training for careers, business or pleasure in both airplanes and helicopters; sales and services of new and used airplanes; private helicopter charter; as well as indoor and outdoor parking of aircraft.
The public will have the opportunity to walk around and view the different aircraft based at the field. These aircraft consist of homebuilt, experimental, aerobatic, and a variety of other aircraft. An explanation of the procedures employed by pilots and the airport management will be made to ensure the safety record of Princeton Airport.
A visit into the maintenance hanger will show the public how and why the aircraft must comply with the Federal Aviation Regulations. During the tour, visitors may be invited to sit inside an airplane to observe and start to understand how the controls work. The tours take approximately 40 minutes and are free and open to the public. Groups are more than welcome.
Princeton Airport is open seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day for the public’s use. Tours will not be conducted during inclement weather. Princeton Airport is located at 41 Airpark Road in Montgomery Township off Route 206, 3.5 miles north of the town of Princeton. For further information, contact Steve Nierenberg at (609)-921-3100.
