Williamson–Sodus Airport (ICAO: KSDCFAA 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 the 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]
