Friends of Essex Skypark

"I supported the efforts to save the sky park from the beginning. Baltimore County has a rich aviation history, especially on the east-side. By working together, the 99-year lease ensures that this unique treasure is not simply part of that history, but will be around for generations to come!" — Councilwoman Cathy Bevins


"Essex Sky Park is a valuable historic and present-day asset to eastern Baltimore County. Many early pioneers in aviation learned their trade here, continuing to this generation of space explorers — Tom Jones — the astronaut. Because of the hard work of community and aviation supporters, the Sky Park will continue to make history into the future." — Delegate Rick Impallaria


"Back in 1973, I took my first leap into the air at Essex Skypark. My thanks to all of its defenders and friends for keeping the hangar doors open and keeping the dream of flight alive for our young explorers. See you on the ground, and in the air, at this special and sentimental aerodrome." — Tom Jones (www.AstronautTomJones.com")


"The Essex Sky Park is one of the very unique attractions in eastern Baltimore County," said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. "I am very pleased that the County was able to reach an agreement with the operators of the park to ensure that it could continue to serve Baltimore County and the region."


"I want to thank Baltimore County for working with state elected officials and the community to preserve the Essex Sky Park. I look forward to the park flourishing over the next hundred years so that generations of airplane enthusiasts have a place to go and have fun." — Senator Kathy Klausmeier


"I want to thank the volunteers who have worked so hard to preserve and enhance the Essex Skypark. The skypark is a local treasure, and I was proud to join with other elected officials to keep it open. Not only is this a unique part of our aviation history, but it is a special resource for the people of eastern Baltimore County." — Baltimore County Councilman David Marks


"Best wishes for many more years of flying with safe & gentle landings at the Essex Skypark. Remember, gravity is not just a good idea. It's the law. And it's not subject to repeal — no matter which party is in charge! — Delegate Kathy Szeliga


"I grew up in the community surrounding the Essex Skypark and flew on planes there. It was an honor and privilege to have worked with so many fine people to save the Skypark." — Delegate Mike Weir, Jr.
