The North Central West Virginia Airport (CKB) is the Northern Gateway to the State of West Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic Region.
When corporations and businesses search for new locations, airport facilities rank among the top most important considerations. The majority of the activity at CKB is aviation maintenance and aerospace technology with regional passenger airline service to connecting hub destinations. CKB's attraction to aviation and aerospace includes a 7,000 x 150 foot FAR Part 139 Certified runway with Instrument Landing System Approach, ILS, a Federal Aviation Administration operated Air Traffic Control Tower, and its Aerospace and Industrial Parks.
It is significant to note to that within 600 miles of the Airport and its Aerospace and Industrial Parks are:
59% of the nation's population and purchasing power
58% of the nation's industrial establishments
65% of the nation's value manufacturing
Easy access to Interstate 79 and close proximity to two-thirds of the nation's population, industrial establishments, and manufacturing makes the North Central West Virginia Airport an attractive location for doing business.
