Here's A Little Bit Of Our Airport's History For You
College Park Airport is the "World's Oldest Continually Operating Airport". It is without a doubt one of the most significant sites in aviation history. After the Wright Brothers' first flights at Kitty Hawk, it took them several years to get anyone interested in the purchase of their machine. In 1908 they finally were able to convince the U.S. government to test a much improved airplane. Several other countries then followed suit. In 1909 the machine was "officially" accepted and all was left of the Wrights' government contract was to teach two(2) Army officers to fly the plane. It was then that a field was selected in the small town of College Park to carry out this instruction and the College Park airfield was established.
The College Park Airfield had established itself as the first military training field and other "firsts" followed.
FREQUENTLY ISSUED NOTAMS AT COLLEGE PARK AIRPORT
1. Smoke at the approach end of runway 15. This is due to the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute. Quite often the firefighters train to battle blazes so naturally smoke will billow and it could possibly reduce visibility.
2. The second most frequently issued NOTAM is "personnell and equipment adjacent to runway". Sometimes this NOTAM is issued due to grass cutting by airport staff, or any other type of service being performed on the field.
3. A NOTAM has been issued for deer in the vicinity of the runway. We are currently working on resolving te problem. Please notify the linesman via Unicon if you spot any deer in the vicinity of the runway.
