Griffing Sandusky Airport (IATA: SKYICAO: KSKYFAA LID: SKY) was a public airport in Erie County, Ohio, next to Sandusky Bay three miles southeast of Sandusky.[1] The airport permanently closed on December 31, 2013 and the FAA A/FD and VFR sectional charts no longer show the airport as open or operational.[2] Instrument approach procedures are no longer available from the FAA's website. All hangars and the entrance were demolished in April, 2016. The Sandusky Register confirmed that the city announced that a sports park will replace the airport and will open in spring 2017 called the Cedar Point Sports Center.[3]
