Mark and Cheryl Hussman shared a report of activity at Blake Field for 2018 with commissioners Don Suppes, Mark Roeber and Mike Lane at the commissioners' March 19 meeting.

Cheryl said, "The runway was closed until Dec. 19, but we were able to remain open and operational during the main runway closure thanks to the dirt runway.

"We had a great turnout for our ribbon cutting on Dec. 21. The new runway and lights have been quite popular. We've received comments on them several times."

Mark noted, "We have been able to keep our fuel pricing competitive and stable. Total fuel sold was 46,590.19 gallons, up 9.5 percent. Rent collected was $17,096, a 12.9 percent decrease due to the runway closure. The bigger guys left the field, but most are coming back."

Cheryl added, "Looking forward, we have seen an increase in traffic and inquiries for space on the field. At this moment, we do not have any hangar space for rent, only two or three tie down spaces for monthly renters, and two to three tie downs left open regularly for transients.

"The option that is available is for people who want to build their own hangar."

The number of aircraft based at Blake Field as of Dec. 31, 2018, was 63, consisting of one helicopter, one motor-glider, several single and twin-engine planes and numerous experimental aircraft.
