If you’re looking for an aircraft maintenance location that allows taxi-way access for your business — look no further. Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport features 11,800′ x 200′ foot runway with ‘heavy’ aircraft capable taxiways and aprons. Our runway is capable of handling all types of aircraft. It is also equipped with an FAA – ‘Category I’ Instrument Landing System (ILS) which supports landing operations during nearly all weather conditions. A variety of Aircraft ‘Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul’ (MRO) businesses are already sharing this airfield. It is envisioned that additional MRO providers will benefit from joining the cluster and collaboration of MRO service providers — with end-goal being to fully develop Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport as a major ‘full-service’ aircraft maintenance facility.
