Taxiway E is also 50 feet wide, and connects the 5-unit T-hangar to Runway 16/34. The last 240 feet of Taxiway E that connects to Runway 16/34 is turf.
Throughout the year, the Airport hosts the Sports Car Club of America rallies for Central Pennsylvania. During times of the rallies, NOTAMs are posted.
If you are planning to fly into the airport during the car rallies, it’s not a problem. The airport is not closed during the rallies. SCCA and airport personnel are equipped with radios to know when aircraft are approaching.
If you are flying in to watch the rally, we suggest back taxiing on RW-24 from the runway intersection and parking to the left of the runway.
Hangar space located at the airport includes a 14,400 square foot conventional hangar. This hangar has three offices, two restrooms and a shower facility. To request more information on this and other hangars available at Mid-State Airport, please call 814-342-3897 or 814-342-6296 (leave message).

About the Unique Topography Surrounding Mid-State Airport
Excerpt from Ben Cramer’s Guide to the Allegheny Front Trail, 2nd edition:
“On a topographic map of Pennsylvania, the Allegheny Front is a very dramatic feature. This abrupt uprising in the landscape marks the boundary between the parallel valleys and sharp-backed ridges of the aptly named Ridge and Valley Province to the south and east, and the high jumbled hills of the Allegheny Plate to the north and west. Passengers on commuter flights traveling eastbound toward University Park will see a gently rolling landscape plunging dramatically into Bald Eagle Valley while pilots flying in the other direction face a steep forested wall of dimension seen in few other places east of the Mississippi.” (p. 8)
