Aviation Needs

The airport is located along Rt. 902 in Mahoning Township, approximately 3 miles west of the Borough of Lehighton and only 8 miles from Jim Thorpe. We are located in close proximity to many of the fun activities Carbon County has to offer. The Airport Authority offers services such as a comfortable lounge area for pilots and passengers complete with restrooms, free WIFI, internet-connected desktop computer/printer, Automated Weather Observation display, and large screen TV. We sell 100 octane Low Lead Avgas and Jet fuel to our aviation customers. The Avgas is used by most small aircraft and the Jet Fuel is used mostly by Helicopters and Turbo Prop aircraft. The Authority also rents aircraft hangars, hard surface aircraft tie-downs, and office space to aircraft owners and aviation businesses based at the airport.
