11/14/2021 – 14 years ago this morning, the Easton Air Traffic Control Tower started operations. The first official transmission was made by current Airport Manager, Micah Risher, as he made the announcement opening up the airspace for the first time.

The first IFR Clearance was issued by John Stevens who is the only original controller still in duty today!

The first pilots to receive service were longtime Easton Airport business owners, Bob and Michelle Anstatt.
