Wurtsboro Airport has a reputation of mixing older, vintage aircraft with the newest high performance aircraft of our day. This rich history is one of the things that makes the airport so unique. It is one of the oldest glider airports in the nation that is still in continuous operation. Since 1927 Wurtsboro has been co-mingling gliders and powered aircraft for the sake of pure enjoyment. Best of all you can still experience a ride or instruction in a completely restored vintage glider, high performance sailplane, or a modern Cessna 172 power plane. Come out and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with the back drop of the majestic Catskill Mountain Ridge.
