Sky Manor Airport (FAA LID: N40) [2] is a public airport located 2 miles (3.2 km) southwest of Pittstown, serving Hunterdon County, New Jersey, USA. The airport has one runway and is mostly used for general aviation.

History[edit]

The airport was owned by the Tice family for many years. The airport was sold to the Kouba family in 1963. Sky Manor was a grass strip at that time. The Kouba family legally battled to move the encroaching electrical power lines further north and won the court case. The runway was then paved and relocated about 300 yards further south, leveled out and paved. The runway lights were installed during that time. Later, it was bought by the Teri family in 1971. The Teri family sold it to Kent Linn in 1978. The current owner and operator of the airport is Sky Manor Airport Partners, LLC, A 22 partner organization which acquired the property in November 2008 and has increased to 40 owner-operators in 2015.[3]
