I tell folks…”I’m an Airport Home Specialist.  I sell airports”.   I get a few funny looks, a lot of smiles and a few that ask questions…

Privately owned, Public Use Airport

One of my first listings, when I got into Real Estate, was a large rural grass airstrip Privately owned, Public use airport.  What does all that mean!? I had no idea…but I have learned along the way!!!

Through my first listings, exploration of details and facts….I discovered that there are over 100 registered airports around Portland that are owned by folks…just like you and me.   Privately owned, Private owned, Public use, Paved strips, Grass strips.   I suppose some airports are old dust cropper airplane airports out in fields or on large acreage that were used to support agriculture and the rural lifestyle.   Some, are fancier, and have paved airstrips, large hangars, flying schools, etc.   Some, of course, are State owned and operated for the general public.  Some have homes on them that are big and fancy, some have small homes and large hangars.

Since my adventure into being a Oregon Airport Specialist…I’ve found a desire in myself, over the years, to help support general aviation.   I want to keep these little privately owned airports to remain as airports!   It’s sad to see the loss of a small rural airport be morphed into a subdivision of many homes for the Metro sprawl.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that homes are being built for new homeowners…I’m a Realtor, always love the excitement of a new neighborhood of homes to sell.

But the other side of me…thinks…where do the first timers, the adventure lover’s and the “just for the love of flying” folks go when they need to go and learn, practice or just enjoy the true facts of flying!?

I love the showing of these airport homes.  I think that there’s a few that I haven’t found, but I now know most of the private airports in and around the Portland Metro and surrounding areas.    I’ve sold quite a few of them to Pilots – who now love the fact that they can fly home.   Land your plane, pull into your hangar and walk in to dinner.  It makes me smile to just to think of that and see their faces as they talk about their private airport and aviation adventures and space…

How cool is that!! ??  If you want to talk airport properties…give me a call.  If you want to sell your airport…I may have a buyer for you!

There’s an airport out there for you…What can I do for you?
