Don's Flying Service Inc

There's only one runway at Marlboro Airport, which facilitates approximately 37 flights each day. That single airstrip's legacy, however, surpasses that of many international airports. The airport dates all the way back to 1922, making it the oldest continuously operating commercial field in the state. The excitement didn't really start until 1946, though, when some of the airport's pilots became instructors and began training a new generation of pilots.

That flight school would become Don's Flying Service, commemorating former airport manager Don LaCouture Sr. Today, its FAA-certified instructors still help new pilots earn their wings. The airport's small size lets the instructors give students ample personal attention, as well as allows them to take on the roles of mentors during private ground and flight training sessions.
