Montauk Airport (IATA: MTP, ICAO: KMTP) is a public airport located on East Lake Drive between Lake Montauk and Block Island Sound, approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) northeast of Montauk, in Suffolk County, New York, USA. Montauk Airport is the easternmost airport in New York State.

History

Montauk Airport was constructed in 1957 to improve access to the East End community, which was being developed as a summer resort. Perry Duryea Jr., a former pilot of the Naval Air Transport Service, was one of the early partners of the corporation that developed the airport, and often piloted his own plane between Montauk and Albany while serving as a member of the New York State Assembly. The following year, regular flights were proposed between Montauk and LaGuardia Airport in New York City during the summer season for use by vacationers and sport fishermen.

In 2007, Montauk Airport received two grants from the Federal Aviation Administration to install an Automated Weather Observing System to provide pilots with current weather conditions at the airport and a Precision Approach Path Indicator to visually alert pilots if they are on the glidepath while preparing to land. An additional grant was received from the FAA in 2008 to install taxiway edge lights.

Facilities

Montauk Airport covers 40 acres (16 ha) and has one runway:

  • Runway 6/24: 3,246 x 75 ft (989 x 23 m), Surface: Asphalt

Incidents

  • On March 7, 2009, a Cirrus SR22 went off the runway and burst into flames while practicing a takeoff from the Montauk Airport. The student pilot and instructor escaped from the aircraft without injuries.
  • On July 31, 2007, a Piper PA-28-181 crashed into trees at the Montauk Airport after aborting a landing and attempting a go-around. The pilot was uninjured and rescued by an airport employee and two people from a nearby beach.
  • On July 7, 2003, a Piper PA-34-200T crashed into the waters of Big Reed Pond in Montauk County Park after taking off from the Montauk Airport, killing the pilot and two passengers. The men had gone out earlier in the evening on a fishing trip for striped bass and were flying back to Republic Airport during the middle of the night. The plane was discovered the next morning by a family canoeing in the pond.
