Williamson–Sodus Airport (ICAO: KSDC, FAA LID: SDC, formerly 3G7) is a privately owned, public use airport in Wayne County, New York, United States.[1] It is located three nautical miles (6 km) west of the central business district of Sodus,[1] and east of Williamson. This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a reliever airport.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned SDC by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA,[3] which assigned SDC to Sandcreek Airport in Guyana.[4]

Williamson–Sodus Airport covers an area of 109 acres (44 ha) at an elevation of 424 feet (129 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 10/28 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,801 by 60 feet (1,159 x 18 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending September 24, 2010, the airport had 26,536 aircraft operations, an average of 72 per day: 99.9% general aviation and 0.1% military. At that time there were 65 aircraft based at this airport: 89% single-engine, 2% multi-engine, 2% helicopter, and 8% ultralight.[1]

Abraham (Jake) Degroote, proprietor of Williamson Aeronautical, was one of the 6 founding members of the Williamson-Sodus Airport back in 1956.
