Yes, You Really Could Have Your Own Missouri Airport and Hangar
Have you ever dreamed of being a pilot? Let's take that one step further. Would you like to have your own airport and hangar? If the answer is yes, I found one in a small town in Missouri that is available right now.
I saw this interesting property mentioned in an article on SFGATE. It's 29701 Masterson Road in Cleveland, Missouri featured on Realtor.com. It's a fully-operational airport known as Bishop's Landing Airport.
This is appropriately enough the aerial view you'd see if you were coming in on an approach.
This is the view of the hanger I believe as seen from the end of the runway.
Here's a closer look at the hangar itself. The listing says this is a 50 by 60 building.
The property was designed to be a fly-in community and it is divided into lots according to the listing on Realtor.
Cleveland, Missouri has a population of 661 and is located south of the Kansas City metro area.
There are more important details in the Realtor listing which include this:
Currently operating as Bishop's Landing Airport, this property includes a 2460' turf runway that is well maintained and in use today. Nearly 60 acres was designed to be a fly in fly out community. The land is also subdivided and recorded in Cass County in 10 acre lots which makes for a great investment opportunity. Lot 1 has a 50 x 60 hanger with two furnaces, attached 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment upstairs with deck and laundry & kitchen/office below with patio (all with inside and outside access). Lot 1 also has a tiny home (12 x16) also has a nice orchard of fruit trees. There is a pond and some nice, wooded area.
Due to the fact that I'm afraid of heights (even though I've flown on major airlines many times), I'm gonna take a hard pass on this. The fact that I don't have the current $889,900 asking price is the other reason. But, maybe that's not too steep for you and maybe you have the wings to fly. If so, skies the limit. Literally.
