Stroud Municipal Airport has undergone several improvement projects during the last two years, and the airport plans to show off its new features by hosting its first ever ‘Fly In’ on May 16.
The ‘Fly In’ is free for the public to attend and for the pilots who wish to fly into the Stroud Municipal Airport. The event will last from 7 to 11 a.m. May 16 and will include a complimentary pancake breakfast.
The city of Stroud is located around 50 miles to the southwest of Tulsa. The airport’s address is 2011 N. Highway 99.
During the past couple of years the airport has undergone several improvements, said Fran Wood, who is with the city’s economic development department.
Wood said they decided to host their first ever ‘Fly In’ to reintroduce pilots to the airport.
“We want to show it off,” Wood said.
Projects consist of nine new hangars, a new fuel farm and runway improvements.
The hangars and fuel farm were paid for by the city, which owns and operates the airport. Runway work was funded by the Federal Aviation Administration.
“We’re friendly,” Wood said. “If you’re out flying and it’s a beautiful day come by and have breakfast with us.”
