Meade Municipal Airport (MEJ) is located near

The Meade Municipal Airport is classified as a general
aviation airport. The current airport site comprises
approximately 247 acres of fee simple property ownership and
22 acres of easements. Development of the airport facility
for the City of Meade was initiated in 1941 by the Chamber
of Commerce. Since 1947, a number of airport improvements
have been made including runways, taxiways, aprons, parking
areas, T-hangars, and various lighting improvements.
Significant improvements consisted of main hangar
construction in 1970, construction of a new primary runway
in 1987, upgrades to the airport electrical vault, and other
lighting modifications and improvements in the late 1980's.
The runway was reconstructed, widened and extended in 1992.
