Fly In

Experience a True Fly-In Community

If you’re a pilot, Mountain Air is the ideal getaway, featuring the highest private runway east of the Mississippi. Depending on the type of aircraft, most locations in the eastern United States are no more than three hours away. This convenience provides flexible work and travel opportunities.

At an elevation of 4,600 feet, the paved runway measures 2,875 feet and landing here is considered a special treat by pilots and their families. Once on the ground, you’re just steps from the club and a short jaunt from home.

Special Happenings on the Runway

The runway also hosts special events throughout the year, such as a 4th of July party with fireworks, outdoor movie nights, stargazing and astronomy gatherings, and airplane and auto events.

An Active Pilots Association

The members of the Mountain Air Pilots Association come from diverse aviation backgrounds. Individually and as a group, they participate in recreational flight while actively promoting programs emphasizing safety and training.

Please note the Mountain Air runway is private and permission is required to land. Contact the Mountain Air Property Owners Association at 828-682-1578 to request the necessary documents.
