Wallops Research Airport
Wallops Main Base

Wallops manages its research airport for a variety of aircraft projects.  Hangar, office and shop space are available.

The research airport includes:

  • 3 runways
  • 1 UAV runway
  • 2 hangars
  • An Aeronautical Control Center

Pilots using the Wallops research airport fly through a virtual "keyhole to the sky." Our control zone rises vertically 2,500 feet in a 5 statute-mile radius of the airport with designated arrival and departure corridors.  Because air traffic is minimal, commercial and government clients find it easy to carry out their research and test activities.
