Airport History

Waterbury – Oxford Airport is centrally located in Connecticut in the town of Oxford and approximately seven miles southwest of the city of Waterbury. It opened for public use in December 15, 1969.  Before that, the airport was owned by a private pilot who made his hobby of flying a business.  He owned a collection of single engine planes; then eventually sold the airport to the State of Connecticut in the late ‘60s.  Since then, the number of based aircraft has increased so that it is now home to the highest count of aircraft in a single general aviation airport in the state. Effective July 1, 2013, FAA approved transfer of the State’s six airports, including Waterbury-Oxford Airport, from the Connecticut Department of Transportation to the Connecticut Airport Authority.
