The Airport offers business and pleasure travelers access to the region via private and chartered aircraft ranging from single engine piston to multi-engine jet. The Airport typically serves aircraft such as Gulfstream V, the largest of the corporate class aircraft and, on occasion, narrow body airline class equipment. In addition to business related flights, the Airport also serves medical air-ambulance flights, freight charters and flight training. The Pittsfield Municipal Airport is home to more than 50 aircraft, including helicopters and fixed wing, which are flown for personal and business use.
Owned and operated by the City of Pittsfield, the 300 acre Airport consists of two paved and lighted runways, aircraft taxiways and ramps as well as 10 hangar buildings and a passenger terminal. The primary 5000 foot runway is served by three instrument approach systems allowing aircraft operations during periods of low visibility. An automated weather observation system provides pilots real time weather and other pertinent information concerning flight safety.
