Maryland Airport

Maryland Airport is a privately owned and operated general aviation airport in western Charles County that is open to the public, serving the Washington DC metro area. The airport is home to 46 based aircraft, including the helicopter with MedSTAR Rapid Transportation, and hosts an average of 47 aircraft operations a day. The airport is 20 miles south of Washington, DC and is the closest reliever airport to Reagan National Airport that is outside of DC’s no-fly zone.

The airport was identified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the 1990s as a General Aviation Reliever Airport, and given its reliever status, the airport became eligible for federal funding for improvements to enhance user safety and expand capacity. Following this Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) designation, the FAA committed approximately $20 million to the airport, and an Airport Master Plan was developed.

The initial phase of airport expansion and improvements, consisting of a new 3,740-foot runway, runway lights, and expanded taxiway, was constructed in 2013, subsequent to the approval of the Airport Master Plan in 1999. The Master Plan ultimately calls for a 4,300-foot runway.

The airport was purchased in early 2019 by PSM Holdings with the expressed intentions of completing the planned runway extension and making other significant improvements to airport infrastructure. Approximately 600 acres of land surrounding the airport are currently the subject of rezoning from the Watershed Conservation District to commercial zoning.
