Heritage Field (IATA: PTW[2], ICAO: KPTW, FAA LID: PTW) is a public use airport in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, United States.[1] It is located three nautical miles (6 km) east of Pottstown,[1] in Limerick Township. The airport is privately owned by Limerick Aviation LP.[1]

Previously known as Pottstown Limerick Airport, the airport was sold in 2009 by its former owner, the Exelon Generation Company, which also owns the nearby Limerick Nuclear Power Plant.[3][4] It is now referred as Heritage Field on the local UNICOM.

This is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation reliever airport.[5]
