Skyport Airport - see: http://www.airfields-freeman.com/PA/A...

The 1962 AOPA Airport Directory described Skyport as having a total of 4 sod runways,

with the longest being the 2,176' Runway 18/36.

The field was said to offer charter, hangars, tiedowns, fuel, and major repairs.

The operator was listed as Richard Wiebley, who was also an Aircoupe dealer.

Tom Beamer recalled, âœThe airport operated as Skyport Airport, the parts/modification business as Skyport Ercoupe Services.

By 1962 the parts/modification business had grown to the point

that Dick moved it into the family barn across Skyport Road from the airport
