RJD – Ridgely Revival Underway
Grass and paved tie downs are available now. Call 240-464-8998.
With great approaches and a NEW beautiful 3,214 foot runway, Ridgely is on its way back to being better than ever!
Since the 152-acre property was purchased last January, there has been a massive clean-up of junk cars and planes, major work on the grounds, and repairs to existing hangars and buildings. The greatest improvement to date is the resurfacing and widening of the runway and the clean-up of the approach to RWY 30. Work continues on a new FBO building opening soon, a new friendly fuel area and a snack shop.
The new airport manager is Mike O’Brien, who with the help of MAA (Maryland Aviation Administration) is well underway at transforming the forgotten gem into a star.
The 2017 plans include:
• New pilots lounge and bath rooms.
• Resurfaced taxiways and New ramp and apron.
• Construction of 20 New T-Hangars
• Two additional Aircraft Maintenance buildings.
• Launch of Ridgely Runway Restaurant.
• New AWOS system.
Sounds like a candidate for fun places to fly!
