Westminster has a regional airport which primarily serves corporate jets and private planes. It is located on Route 97N above the city. The FBO offers services by SkyTech with self service or truck service fuel offered. Flight school and aircraft maintenance are available. The airport does not have a control tower.
I know several pilots that regularly use this airport as well as hangar their planes here. No complaints about the service - and the FBO has always been friendly when I go there!
Visitors to airport are welcome to watch the planes take off and land. Just outside the FBO and fence is a small park area with a picnic table.
Each year in October the airport hosts the “Wings of Freedom” World War II Airport demonstration. In the past, this event has had the following aircraft on display: B17G, B24, TP51D, and B25J, as well as offering flights (for a fee) in some of the aircraft. For details on this event, visit the airport’s website.
Address of the airport: 200 Airport Drive, Westminster, Md., 21157
Westminster is pretty much away from most public transportation – no subway, no real bus into the big cities, no train station. Getting around Westminster means you need to walk, drive a car, or ride a bicycle.
There is a local CATS bus that you can make reservations on for transportation to get where you need to go. It has a couple routes that will deviate to pick people up. You can find out more from their website at www.carrolltransit.org/.
