Ebensburg Airport (9G8)
The Ebensburg airport was built sometime in the early 1930's as best we could determine from recently declassified information, and is still an active rural airport today. The field serves as a base for a few local corporate aircraft, and students like it's location as a place to practice their newly acquired skills.
The airport sits in a scenic area, on top of a ridge of the Allegheny Mountains at an elevation of 2099' mean sea level (MSL). It sports a convenient 1615' x 107' sod strip for ultralights and helicopters. It also has a comfortable 3204' x 50' hard surface runway for those aircraft desiring macadam. A convenient 24 hour self serve fuel access, and a local FBO make the airport a good stopover for a cross country traveler.
The airport is located 3 miles southwest of the borough of Ebensburg and is convenient to Routes 22 and 219. Area attractions include the world famous Horseshoe Curve, the Portage Railroad Museum, Johnstown Flood Museum, Prince Gallitzin State Park and Blue Knob Ski Resort.
Good food is right down the street at several eateries, for those who desire a meal. A number of local motels are also available to house those travelers in need of a night's rest.
The airport can be reached at 814-471-0346 or 814-243-7626.
