Albertus Airport Rules and Regulations

Albertus Airport General Lease (Sample) and Hangar Rent

Albertus Airport has been in operation since 1945. It offers one hard surface runway large enough to handle any Corporate Jet. The runway is 5,500 feet long by 100 feet wide and grooved full length providing full ILS with MALSAR approach lights, VOR, GPS, and Loc/DME instrument approaches.

Additionally, the airport offers two well maintained and smooth grass runways which are great for lighter general aviation aircraft, especially conventional gear aircraft. With three runways, you can always choose one that is close into the wind without having to fight a crosswind landing.

Currently, the airport has 65 based aircraft, ranging from ultralights to gliders to jets.

A full range of services are available at the Albertus Airport. Both 100LL avgas and Jet-A fuel are available. Freeport is one of the best General Aviation Maintenance Facilities in the area and also has a very active Flight School.

New corporate size hangars were built in 2009, large enough to house most small cabin -class Turbo Prop and Jet Aircraft. Land ownership has been expanded around the airport to allow room to build any size corporate hangar that may be needed.

Current Airport Manager, Darrell Janssen, has operated the airport from January 1984 to May of 1992. In 1997, he returned to manage the airport. In addition to being the City’s Airport Manager, he operates his own business as an (FBO) Fixed Based Operator, providing all aviation services at the airport under the name of Freeport Flite Center.

The entire staff at Freeport Flite Center is very aviation knowledgeable and ready to serve you.

  • Commercial Pilot Airplane with Single and Multi-Engine Instrument Rating
  • Certified Flight Instructor
  • Certified Instrument Instructor
  • Advanced Ground Instructor
