Rio Creek Airport
Rio Creek Airport was established in the early 70’s when a group of enthusiastic pilots began building a runway just west of “downtown” Rio Creek. Through many hours of rock picking and plowing, many friends and family members helped transform a field into Runway 7/25. The first flight out of Rio Creek Airport was in a 1946 415-CERCO Ercoupe (N386H) on August 28, 1973. Over the next few years, two hangers, an aviator’s clubhouse and an A-framed cabin were added as the aviation bug captivated the small town.
