NORWICH – There were 1,192 take offs and landings at the Lt. Warren E. Eaton/Chenango County Airport in North Norwich last year, the majority of which were planes operated for Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals.
Flight instruction at the airport accounted for 142 take offs and landings. Corporate jets using the airport include P&G with 386, New York Central Mutual with 190, and Lockheed Martin with 160. Smaller companies, such as Baillie Lumber, E Tetz & Son, South Fork Asphalt, Grow & Bloom Alternative Heating and Therma Tron X accounted for double digit numbers.
“There are a lot of companies going in and out of the airport. And, a lot have indicated that they wouldn’t be doing business here if we didn’t have the facility,” Airport Administrator Don W. MacIntosh told members of the Chenango County Planning & Economic Development Committee Tuesday.
