Potsdam Municipal Airport (ICAO: KPTDFAA LID: PTD), also known as Damon Field, is a village owned, public use airport located two nautical miles (4 km) east of Potsdam, a village in the Town of Potsdam, St. Lawrence County, New York, United States.[1] It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned PTD by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned PTD to Port Alexander Seaplane Base in Port Alexander, Alaska).[4][5]

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Potsdam Municipal Airport covers an area of 168 acres (68 ha) at an elevation of 474 feet (144 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 6/24 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,705 by 60 feet (1,129 x 18 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending September 14, 2011, the airport had 6,000 aircraft operations, an average of 16 per day: 92% general aviation, 5% military, and 3% air taxi. At that time there were 14 aircraft based at this airport: 93% single-engine and 7% ultralight.[1]
