I fly in a few times a year to visit family. Heavy parachute activity and very little in the way of facilities. Also an uncomfortably close hill if you are departing to the north at gross. What are you interested in knowing?
Skyboy, are you sure you're not thinking of Essex County. The closest thing to a jet at Sussex is the turboprop Cessna they use for the jumpers.
You must know Wild Bill, right? I used to work at the airport as a kid, when I was in highschool (in the mid-late 80s). I worked for flight time, took a REALLY long time to get my license that way. It was a great place to learn about aviation, and I met a ton of really awesome people.
Leo Loudenslager used to fly out of there, now there's a memorial for him right next to his old hangar. He was THE MAN, 7 time national aerobatic champion, and an airline captain to boot! I don't think it gets any better than that!
Last time I was in there, one of the old airport bums up in the "Tower" was telling us that the airport is for sale. I hope this does not mean condos on the property.
The airshows they had there sounded pretty fun, and I wish I could have been there.
Some of those who used to fly at the airshows in the 80s-90s:
Leo Loudenslager, Patty Wagstaff, Jimmy Franklin, Art Scholl had flown there, Oscar Boesch (glider pilot), the French Connection, Roger Lenhart (piper cub act), many others that I'm forgetting.
As I'm writing this, I realize many of them are gone.
There was always a myriad of warbirds there as well, anything from DC-3s to Corsairs, B-17s to P-51s, and B-25s to P-40s. The best part was when the warbirds or other acts would "dust" freeloader's hill (the one to the North of the airport, off runway 03). The people up there had a great view of the airshow, but didn't pay anything. I'm sure they liked it when the fighters buzzed them with the smoke on.
