Plainville’s Robertson Airport

Robertson Airport in Plainville services small-engine commercial and private aircraft. Founded in 1911, it is Connecticut’s oldest airfield. Originally consisting of little more than a meadow used by novice pilots in the early 20th century, the land was purchased by Stamford Robertson in 1941 for $5,000. Over the next 30 years, Robertson increased the acreage of the airfield, refined landing strips, and built permanent hangar space for aircraft.

  1. Could be the airport in Plainville or Bristol. My mother and her older brother use to go to the airfield in Bristol and get rides on the paper type planes for 5 cents per ride. Most likely the early to mid-1920’s.
