South Grand Lake Regional Airport

Grand Lake Web Designs has developed and maintained the South Grand Lake Regional Airport internet presence since 2014. During this period there has been a significant number of airport improvements and events.

In 2004, nine volunteers formed a public trust to develop 54 acres of grassland into what has now become a 105-acre jet-capable regional airport with almost 20 based aircraft serving the Grand Lake Area.

The airport is an economic development project for the benefit of the Grand Lake Area Community. With improvements of expanded fuel ramp, runway lights, and GPS all-weather approach in progress, the airport has reached a new level for 24/7 operation for business and personal aircraft, including coast-to-coast flights and destination, leased aircraft.

The Oklahoma Airport Operators Association selected South Grand Lake Regional Airport as the 2019 Airport of the Year award recipient. Additionally, Brent Howard was the recipient of the 2019 Airport Manager of the Year award.
