Cross Keys Airport (FAA LID: 17N) is a privately owned, public use airport located one nautical mile (2 km) south of the Cross Keys area of Monroe Township in Gloucester County, New Jersey, United States.[1] A skydiving operation is based at the airport.

History[edit]

Cross Keys Airport made international news on May 25, 2006 when several F-16 jets escorted a Cessna aircraft to land there after it strayed into a 30 mile restricted area temporarily imposed during the visit of U.S. President George W. Bush to a town in Pennsylvania. The pilot was said to be "in radio contact... compliant."[2]

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Cross Keys Airport covers an area of 280 acres (113 ha) at an elevation of 162 feet (49 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 9/27 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,500 by 50 feet (1,067 x 15 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2010, the airport had 25,620 general aviation aircraft operations, an average of 70 per day. At that time there were 41 aircraft based at this airport: 90% single-engine and 10% multi-engine.[1]
