Laurel Airport is
a friendly, general aviation airport near Billings in Eastern Montana.
Currently over 100 aircraft are based in Laurel.
The new 5,200/75' runway (04/22) won the 2001 Quality in Construction Award for excellence
in construction of an asphalt surface from the National
Asphalt Pavement Association. The new construction
allows service of 100% of the general aviation fleet of the
B2 Class (planes up to 12,500 pounds, wing spans up to 79'
with 10 or fewer passengers). The project includes the
addition of a new ramp and a parallel taxiway as well as the
2002 summer completion of new taxi lanes and hanger areas. In
2004 the airport purchased a new snow plow to keep the facilities
prepared for year around access.
With less traffic, short taxi distances and a training FBO, Laurel
provides an excellent training base. For a challenge, try the shorter, narrower, uphill, downhill, over-a-tree
runway with minimum traffic! The training course provides
lots of take-off/landings per hour - a great way to sharpen
the flying skills. For those who prefer sod, the sod
runway will meet the need.
The airport is fenced and gated, providing a secure storage
location for your aircraft. Two GPS
approaches serve the main runway, 04/22, and it has PAPI lights.
Affordable 100LL and Jet Fuel is available from dependable self-serve
fueling facilities with on site help available during regular business
hours. Repairs are available on field.
Hangar and commercial sites available
on affordable long term (20 year) lease with renewal option.
For the outdoor enthusiast, camping facilities are available on
the airport grounds. Local motel and rental car accommodations
are also available.
