Oswego County Airport (ICAO: KFZYFAA LID: FZY) is a county-owned, public-use airport three nautical miles (6 km) northeast of the central business district of Fulton, in Oswego County, New York, United States.[1] The airport is located in Volney, New York. It has been designated by the Federal Aviation Administration as a general aviation reliever airport for Syracuse Hancock International Airport, located 25 miles (40 km) to the southeast.

The airport is home to a flight school and also has charter services available for local residents. Short and long-term tie-downs, as well as hangar rentals, are available to aircraft owners. Organizations based at the airport include an Experimental Aircraft Association chapter and a Civil Air Patrol squadron. In 1999, Phish performed their summer festival, Camp Oswego, at the airport.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned FZY by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[2]
