The History of Sky Acres Airport
Sky Acres Airport's (Lagrangeville, NY) beginnings can be traced back to 1956, when Doug Cochran bought his first plane, a Cessna 172, and needed a place to land it. For the next 8 years, much hard work ensued, with countless sacrifices from his wife and 6 children. He converted his farm and barn into a runway and facilities, with the vision of aviation enthusiasts one day coming together to share his love of flight. In 1964, the initial seed that was sown and diligently cultivated finally bore fruit, and his dream was realized: Sky Acres Airport. As legend has it, Herb Styles was the first aviator to land a plane at the airport. He christened Runway 35 with his single-engine Piper Comanche. He and his family purchased Sky Acres Airport in 1976, and they've owned it ever since. In 1995, the runway underwent an overhaul and was improved to FAA standards under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP). The runway was enlarged and resurfaced to its current 60 foot by 3,828 foot dimensions. The parallel taxiway, Runway 17, was also extended. There are now 3 secondary parking ramps that can accommodate turbine and jet aircraft.

  Sky Acres is a great stop when transiting between Maine and the Mid-Atlantic area. The fuel prices are always at the low end of the spectrum; they have a great on-field restaurant; they even have a pilot's shop. What more could you want? Just outside to the north of the congested New York City airspace, it's a nice place to stop after doing the scenic Hudson River corridor. Great GA airport; recommended!

  This was our first time landing at Sky Acres. We stopped here because 1/ It's about half way between HEF and OLD, and 2/ The fuel price was the best in the area. The taxi from up (emphasis on UP!) the taxiways to the fuel pumps is eye opening to flat landers like me! The staff is friendly, and we'll be back.

  Landed 5/3/17 in Baron, when we walked into the FBO to get our rental car, He was all ready on phone with them to find out why the car was not here at the requested time. On return, daughter left an iPad in rental car. FBO answered the call, and went to car with cordless phone, found it and arranged returning it to Maine. THANK YOU, WHAT GREAT SERVICE I will be back

  I flew my Bonanza into 44N twice last month, including one arrival on Christmas Eve. Stephen, the owner, personally picked me and my family up at the airport on Christmas Eve and drove us to the Metro North station in Poughkeepsie so that we could take the train and see family. In 20 years of flying, I've never seen someone do something so generous. Just a kind, helpful person. The airport has all the services that I wanted - heated hangar, fuel, pilot supplies, rental car etc. It's a nice alternative to the expensive lower Westchester airports. I recommend it.
