I've had this crazy idea of starting my own airport. The reason is not only because I've always wanted to, but I believe there is a demand for one in an area that is near some popular sight seeing areas and a place where the hangars are full at all the nearby airports. Each airport has a waiting list for more hangars. With more and more people teleworking from home, they are also moving out to the rural areas.
How many acres would I need? How exactly do you make a living (noticed I said "living", not "profit") with building an airport? 10 hangars at $200/month rent doesn't seen too enticing as expenses would surely be that, if not more. Perhaps some of the acreage can be sold/rented for a few houses.
Anyone here ever started their own airport?
