Welcome to Meriden Airport

 

The City of Meriden owns and operates the Meriden-Markham Municipal

Airport (MMK) located in the southern portion of the city convenient to

major metropolitan areas of central Connecticut. The airport officially

dates back to as early as 1928 when Ernest Markham was named the 1st

airport manager. On July 14, 1962 the airport was renamed in honor of

Ernest L. Markham for his 32 years of dedicated service.

 

The Airport accommodates single-engine and light twin-engine aircraft

operated for business and pleasure use. Key facilities and services include:

 

• Runway 18-36 (3,100' x 75')
• Pilot controlled runway & taxiway edge lighting
• PAPI-4 and REILS
• GPS and VOR approaches
• On field ASOS
• Full parallel taxiway
• Terminal building
• Aircraft tiedown and hangar storage
• Aircraft self service fueling (100LL avgas with the lowest prices in the area)
• Aircraft maintenance provided by Mustang Aviation
• Flight instruction, rentals & ground school. Meriden Aviation Center

MMK is home to Chapter 27 of the Experimental Pilots Association (EAA)

and the Silver City Squadron with the Civil Air Patrol. The EAA is an active

participant in the Young Eagles Program (ages 8 to 17) and has introduced

over 1,500 would-be pilots to their first flight experience. The Civil Air

Patrol provides aerospace education, leadership and search & rescue

training for cadets ages 12-18 as well as Sr. adult volunteers.

The Meriden Markham Airport has been the home of the Silver City

Flying Club Inc. since it was founded on November 4, 1946. It is a

State of Connecticut registered non-profit, forty member, equity

ownership flying club where each member owns one share of the club.

The purpose of the club is to improve the flying skills of the members

and to provide them with aircraft for economical transportation and

recreation. The members of the club collectively own two aircraft, a

1981 Cessna C-172P and a 1979 Piper Archer PA28-181. Both aircraft

are IFR certified. In order to exercise flying privileges in the club

aircraft the member must have a minimum of Private Pilot’s license.

MMK is included in the Federal Aviation Administration's National

Plan of Integrated Airport Systems and the Connecticut Department

of Transportation Statewide Airport System Plan. MMK is a federally-obligated

airport and a continual recipient of grant funds for capital improvements

from these agencies.

Operations at MMK are overseen by the Meriden Aviation Commission,

which meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the airport

terminal building. The public is welcome.

We look forward to serving all your aviation needs at MMK!
