Cascade Locks (CZK)
The first property for this airport was acquired in 1948. The construction of the airport took place in 1949 with financing furnished by Oregon State Board of Aeronautics, Washington Aeronautics and the Civil Aeronautics Authority. Washington State was not to be responsible for any construction or material inspection or future maintenance costs. Oregon Aeronautics has continued to improve the runway and to purchase additional land to protect the airport. No facilities are located at the airport other than restroom.
Cascade Locks State Airport was constructed in 1949 through a joint venture between the Civil Aviation Administration (the predecessor of the FAA), the Washington Aeronautics Commission, and the Board of Aeronautics. The airport is located along the Columbia River, north of Interstate 84, one mile northeast of the community of Cascade Locks. Cascade Locks State Airport was not included in the 1990 NPIAS.
The airport plays a supportive role in the current system, providing access to the surrounding recreational areas, including the starting/ending point of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and the Mt. Hood National Forest. In addition, the airport provides a safe alternative landing site for aircraft flying through the Columbia River Gorge during inclement weather conditions. Cascade Locks State Airport is designated as a Level 4 airport.
