Feb 8,2006 ....the Chamber of Commerce for Plattsburgh has set up a new web site promoting the use of the former U.S. Air Force base for new uses. ( www.montrealairport-us.com ) The website touts the size of the 12,000' runway and over 12 million square feet of concrete apron to park and maneuver airplanes as well as its proximity an hour south of Montreal and close to Lake Placid NY. The airport currently has a major new passenger terminal being constructed and is conveniently located just off Interstate 87 highway. In addition to Pratt & Whitney using the airfield for air-testing of new engines, there is also a new school opening later in 2006 called Plattsburgh Aeronautical Institute. This will be a full FAA approved power-plant and airframe school. Anyone wishing to investigate further is encouraged to contact the addresses shown on the web site or the phone numbers listed.
