County Airports
Need to come in on business? Don’t want to deal with bogged-down airports? Whether you travel to the county for business in our energy, manufacturing and chemical sectors, or for our great freshwater and saltwater fishing, San Patricio’s two county airports can get you here. County airports offer a spectrum of stress-free access to courtesy cars, available hangar rental space and aircraft maintenance shops. Both airports have Jet A and 100 LL fuel for purchase. All you have to do is fly in, tie down and hit the town!
