In the 1920’s, a potato field was converted into a commercial aerodrome to service the growing city of Great Barrington, MA. This small aerodrome eventually grew into the modern facility that it is today. The Great Barrington Airport has a 2585-foot paved runway and two instrument approaches. This New England airport provides sales, service, flight instruction, charter operations and sightseeing tours. MA Living suggests you call to confirm the information before scheduling your flight.
