Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Corning–Painted Post Airport covers an area of 76 acres (31 ha) at an elevation of 963 feet (294 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 14/32 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,269 by 75 feet (996 x 23 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending September 19, 2012, the airport had 9,025 aircraft operations, an average of 24 per day: 99.7% general aviation and 0.3% air taxi. At that time there were 28 aircraft based at this airport: 96% single-engine and 4% helicopter.[1]

One of the local operators is the Costa Flying Service, owing its name to Joseph Costa, a local pilot that attempted to cross the Atlantic in 1936, via Brazil. In the 1940s it was called "Costa's Airport".[3] His son, Joseph R. Costa is currently the airport's manager.[4]
