Easton Airport is hosting a special “Walk & Talk” airport open house series. The event will offer the community an on-site trek of the community airport with a socially distanced walking tour through designated sections of the airfield on May 13, 20, and 27. Continue reading to learn more about the event and safety guidelines that will be followed.

No 4-legged friends or strollers are permitted on the tour. Weather related cancellations will be announced via email in advance with make up dates to be determined.

Groups of approximately 25 people will pre-register and be invited to join airport management for a walking tour. The tour will be informative and engaging, offering a behind the scenes look at airport operations. Along with conversations about the history of the airport, management hopes the event helps the community get outside and back to regularly scheduled activities after a prolonged period of stay-at-home orders and isolation.

The tours will begin at 10 a.m. at the picnic area outside the Easton Airport terminal (see map below). The group will be taken beyond the gates and walk a 1-mile loop to the Easton Air Traffic Control Tower and back. During the walk and conversation, management will make stops to look and take photos at hangars, aircraft, and other equipment that are out during the walk. The tour will end back at the terminal where photo-ops with the F-104 Starfighter, donated to Easton Airport by Tom Blair, will be available.

Hand sanitizer will be available for use during and after the walk. Attendees will be responsible for bringing and wearing face coverings and staying 6-feet apart during the activities. Comfortable walking shoes, camera, sunscreen, and weather appropriate clothes are the only other things needed to enjoy a morning on the community airfield.
