Welcome to York Aviation at the York Airport, the largest privately-owned, public use airport in the country. Located in York County in southcentral Pennsylvania, we offer a variety of services and events to both pilots and members of the community alike. We invite you to take a look and learn more about what York Aviation and the surrounding communities have to offer.

 

AVIATION DAYS OPEN HOUSE 2018! The 2018 York Airport Aviation Days Open House will be held on Father’s Day weekend, June 16th (9am-6pm) and June 17th (9am-4pm). This event gives us the opportunity to showcase the York Airport to the local community. The York Airport is the major General Aviation airport serving the York, Hanover, and Gettysburg areas, and has a positive economic impact to those communities.

Airplane and helicopter rides will be available. Ride tickets range from $35 (plane) to $45 (helicopter) per person. We will also have static aircraft displays, everything from WWII bombers to modern business jets. Food and beverages will also be available. There is no admission fee to the event. For safety reasons, smoking is prohibited at the event.

GoSmartAir will have their Cessna Citation Mustang Jet on display. Please stop by to check it out. Representatives from GoSmartAir will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about this aircraft or any of their other types which are on display.

Vicki Bolla and Dale Carvender will have the Grumpy’s Toy IV Camaro on display. The York US30 Dragway was a significant part of Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins career. Other entries to share the spotlight at Aviation Days are the top fuel dragster of Richard Hahn, the junior stock ’55 Chevy of Tommy Ronca, Dale Broderick and Karl Nishwitz’s competition coupes, the famed D.A. Santucci Top Gas Dragster of Greg Swenson and a potpourri of drag racing vehicles and memorabilia to pay tribute to the facility that was world famous in its day. The show will feature drag racing memorabilia and artifacts for sale along with original posters from the June 1974 NHRA National Invitational event at the track. A special start-up of the race cars will be held at 2 p.m. both days.

We hope to see everyone on Father’s Day weekend!

 

RESTAURANT OPPORTUNITY! We are currently in search of an operator to run a restaurant at the York Airport. Kitchen and dining space are available immediately. This is a great opportunity for a motivated group or individual to operate a restaurant in a local transportation hub setting, with frequent aircraft catering orders, passengers, and street traffic passing through each day. The space is located in the main terminal building, which is along busy US Route 30. Contact Mark at 717.792.5566 for more information.
