Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport (IATA: GFL, ICAO: KGFL), formerly known as Warren County Airport, is a public airport located in the town of Queensbury three miles (5 km) northeast of the city of Glens Falls in Warren County, New York, USA. It is named in honor of Floyd Bennett, the pilot for the first flight ever over the North Pole.

The annual Adirondack Balloon Festival is held at this airport.

History

From 1918 to 1946, the county's only airport, Floyd Bennett Field, was located on what are now the grounds of Queensbury High School. In 1941, ground was broken a few miles east at what is now the current site of the airport. The airport has been served commercially by Colonial Airlines (1940s), Eastern Air Lines (1950s), Mohawk Airlines(1950s - 1970s), Allegheny Airlines (1970s), and Air North (1960s-1980s).

Facilities

Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport covers 500 acres (202 ha) and has two runways:

  • Runway 1/19: 5,000 x 150 ft (1,524 x 46 m), Surface: Asphalt
  • Runway 12/30: 4,000 x 100 ft (1,219 x 30 m), Surface: Asphalt

The north-facing runway 1 is equipped with an instrument landing system and a medium intensity approach lighting system with runway alignment lights. GPS-based instrument approaches are available to all four runway ends. A VORTAC is located at the field and during the 1990s and earlier was used as the basis for IFR approaches to the main runway.

Incidents and Accidents

On November 19, 1969, Mohawk Airlines Flight 411 crashed into Pilot Knob Mountain while attempting to land at the conclusion of a flight from Albany. All 14 passengers and crew were killed in the accident.
