Airports and Oklahomans: The perfect match AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) June 18, 2015
The airport is an economic development project for the benefit of the Grand Lake Area Community. With improvements of expanded fuel ramp, runway lights and GPS all-weather approach in progress, the airport has reached a new level for 24/7 operation for business and personal aircraft, including coast to coast flights and destination leased aircraft.
Air access to a community is a big factor for most companies in their decision for a new, or additional location. New businesses that operate twelve months out of the year, with no dependency on the recreation season, will bring a huge economic benefit to Grand Lake Country.
The aviation industry is one of the largest industries in Oklahoma, and it is growing. Recently, the sales tax exemption for aircraft expensive repair has been extended to all repairs, presenting an opportunity for new business at the South Grand Lake Airport.
South Grand Lake Regional Airport is a Title 60 Public Trust.
