WALLS TOWNSHIP, NJ —Change has been in the air since the sale of Monmouth Executive Airport in late 2013, and the new ownership is embracing jet traffic with an enthusiasm not previously seen on the airport.
“This airport has always had potential,” said KBLM spokesperson C.A. Southerland. “We’re finally maximizing that potential and turning Monmouth Executive Airport and Monmouth Jet Center into a true metro-New York destination for general aviation and corporate operators.”
Monmouth Executive Airport was built by the late Ed Brown near the end of World War II. Brown never sought federal funds or FAA designation as a reliever airport, preferring to operate what was then-known as Allaire Airport on his own terms.
According to Richard Asper, chairman of the Aviation Professionals Group, the new owners — his clients — wasted no time establishing an open dialogue with authorities and agencies, resulting in the quick clearance of former regulatory and other obstacles. “KBLM’s designation as a true FAA reliever airport is fully justified,” Asper said.
The airport has two runways, including one that is 7,371 feet, as well as plenty of available hangar space (both short-term and long-term), according to officials.
The FBO features passenger and pilot lounge areas, a flight planning center and a large aircraft canopy. The airport was recently recertified for the night instrument approaches and is currently in the process of applying for Port-of-Entry recognition and US Customs. As an Avfuel-branded dealer, Monmouth Jet Center offers Avfuel Contract Fuel and AVTRIP Rewards.
The recent Super Bowl exposed the improved Monmouth Executive Airport and Monmouth Jet Center to a vast audience, as well as successfully tested the airport’s new snow removal equipment and aircraft de-icing capabilities, according to airport officials.
