New York’s Orange County Airport (IATA: MGJ, ICAO: KMGJ, FAA LID: MGJ) is an untowered general aviation airport located 1 mile (2 km) southwest of village of Montgomery, in the Town of Montgomery, New York. The 526 acre (2.1 km²) airport is owned by Orange County and can be found at the junction of state highways 211 and NY-416.

It is a popular place for aspiring local pilots to learn to fly or practice their skills. With 125,000 takeoffs and landings annually, it is New York's second-busiest general-aviation airport.

Transmissions between pilots and the airport are rebroadcast on a one-watt station at 88.1 megahertz, so it is possible to tune into them on a standard car radio while driving in the vicinity.

The airport's low traffic and out-of-the-way location have been making it a popular place to store private jets. In 2006 county officials were reported to be working on a deal with a local developer to build 10 private luxury hangars to cater to what they saw as a growing market and raise money for the airport without raising taxes.

Facilities and aircraft

Orange County Airport covers an area of 528 acres (214 ha) which contains two asphalt paved runways: 3/21 measuring 5,006 x 100 ft (1,526 x 30 m) and 8/26 measuring 3,672 x 100 ft (1,119 x 30 m).

For the 12-month period ending August 1, 2007, the airport had 120,000 aircraft operations, an average of 328 per day: 97% general aviation, 2% air taxi and 1% military. There are 228 aircraft based at this airport: 90% single-engine, 9% multi-engine, 1% jet and <1% helicopter.

Auto racing

On July 17, 1960, NASCAR came to the airport with the Empire State 200, on a two-mile course. Rex Allen held off Richard Petty for the win, in front of about 5,000 fans; the mediocre attendance killed any chance of making the race an annual event, as was planned. It remains the only NASCAR event ever held in the Hudson Valley.
