Years ago before deregulation in the airline industry, planes from Northeast and other lines catered to and service little towns like Houlton Maine.

  The government helped support the airline to these smaller off the beaten path areas. But from a houlton maine border crossing photopractical standpoint, you do not have 757, air buses or L 1011's full of passengers coming into Houlton Maine eight times a day. 

That is why it is a great place to live, not tons of people. All that traffic. On the ground, in the sky.

The folks, ones we have are friendly, caring and helpful! During World War Two the airport in Houlton Maine was very much a part of the war effort.

(See earlier blog post  http://activerain.com/blogsview/67360/Houlton-Maine-farmer-helps ) about area farmers hauling war planes with chains into New Brunswick Canada.

Rolling them, tail dragging them  across the border.

To help in the War II effort from Houlton International Airport as the front end of the supply.

Even if there are not hourly runs of planes in and out like some airports schedule day and night.

You can bring your private houlton maine airport photoplane, corporate jet in easily to Houlton International Airport.

You can charter flights too.

Get shuttled, York's of Houlton, the  Ford, Toyota, other flavors of cars rents them. Not just sells them.

We have local Houlton taxi service.

To pick you up to get you to a number of clean, neat motels, rooms, places to stay in Houlton Maine.

Great options for food, meals, restaurants, places to eat in Houlton Maine too.

So when someone asks me if you can fly into Houlton Maine, I don't automatically think no. Or ponder, see, think just large commerical jets lifting off, touching down.

houlton maine airport runway plane photo  I think sure..because lots of folks have planes and their own license.

With a little planning smaller private charters can work around the schedule easily to fly into Houlton Maine.

No place as easy, like it to clear customs, immigration either. Houlton Maine.

Smack dab on the Canadian International boundary means the border is here where you land, take off.

Details on the airport in Houlton Maine from the FAA below...known as KHUL.  If you were a pilot, you would want to know about radio homing frequencies, runway length, weather and many other details.

Before you give the prop a big yank. Warm up the jet turbines. Fire up the engine(s). Remove the wheel chocks, unhook the tie downs. Buckling in, radio hot, flaps up, gaining speed rolling. After the slow turn taxing to line it up. For the leaving the ground lift off in the Piper Cub, corporate private jet. That points in new directions, on new flapping your silver or whatever colored wing adventures. houlton maine,border crossing,airport,mooers realty

Good morning Andy. There are a number of small airports in our area and am fortunate to have a number of friends that fly small planes. I have often hired them to take me on a business trips with going to a commercial airport. Much more fun and quicker as well.

Make it a great weekend!

Jeff ... Had a $15,000 flight for four cats that the owner did not want to fly on a commercial airline. The lear dropped down in Houlton Maine, the crew spent the night, rented a car and then picked up the return fare in Boston to Seatle. Nice to have an airport. Had a fellow from Boston have a buddy fly them up, to buy an Excursion I was selling. He paid cash, took it to St Thomas... airports are handy and this one is quick to clear customs, immigration plus has cheapest AV gas.

Joe .. They have a vital purpose.

CA ... It works, easy does it on the people. We all need space. Can only go so long without it and oh oh rut rho happens. Crazy stuff when no personal space, get out of my face kicks in for survival.
