Barber Airport Property for Sale - September 2017:

This airport is presently a State of Ohio, Class III Airport, ID# 2D1 located three miles north of Alliance, Oh. We are located on State Route #225 or Union Ave.  We have been operating since 1940 and are one of five Sod airports in Ohio with full services. We have maintenance, fuel, hangar space, tie downs and two Fixed Base Operations (FBO’s). 

    Barber Aircraft Inc. is a “C” Corporation formed in 1992 and is the operating FBO on the south side of the airport. Canton Air Sports is a sole proprietorship on the north side of the airport and is a Sky-Diving and Banner –Tow operation. We have two Sod runways 18-36, 3500 ft long, 80 ft wide ( could be 4100 ft)  and 9-27 , 2300 ft long , 130 wide, (could be 4600 ft).

     We have an approved FAA Master Plan that could expand the airport to 4350 ft. 75 ft wide with taxiways; this would be runway 10-28 and hard surface.  There are 25 based aircraft with revenue from numerous rentals of hangar buildings, house, land, and operating oil disposal wells.  

    My wife and I are looking to retire and wish to have a planned sale of all or a part of this property.

This aerial photo shows the view from the south, Greenbower St in the foreground, it shows three of the four homes that have access to the runways plus the last lot for sale on the west side of 18-36.  All the above is on the web site too! This lot is septic approved for one home but could have more with a small package plant.
