I am pleased to report that Eagles Nest continues to grow and expand as a General Aviation Airport. New this year is a flight school, and a tandem skydiving school. 100LL fuel is available at 5.85 or 5.75 a gallon with a Phillips 66 Card. Also new this year is a monthly pilot dinner and a Saturday destination lunch flight. If you want to join either group please contact Al Streit at email@example.com.
After a year of negotiations with the Town of Eagleswood, I am pleased to report that an impressive looking sign has been installed on Stafford Forge Road.
Non Precision GPS Approach- Applications are being processed with the FAA for the establishment of GPS approaches. I anticipate that the process will take at least another six months but we are moving forward. Thanks to John Pallante for his help and guidance.
Maintenance- Tom Gray (732-278-8201) an established and experienced mechanic is onsite daily. Please stop in and speak with Tom about your maintenance needs.
Runway Lighting, REILS, PAPI’s and a Beacon- The lighting project continues to move forward but we are awaiting approval of our grant application with the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT). The process is slow but I expect a positive result very soon.
Taxiway construction- Even though this project is supported and designed by NJDOT, I believe we are at least a year from the start of construction.
Hangar Development-Building Department Construction applications have been filed with Stafford Township and I expect construction to begin shortly. If you or a friend are in need of a hangar please contact me at Eaglesnestairport@yahoo.com. I need to build a list of potential hangar tenants in order to finalize the construction financing package.
Finally we expect to have a community open house and fly-in this summer. Check your emails for details and please come out and support your community airport.
Fly safe and respect our neighbors. Peter

The entrance road to the airport has been paved to give a smooth ride into the airport. In preparation for the first planes at the end of this month, the area surrounding the hangars has been paved as well.
