entire airport to help keep the wildlife out. The area underneath the Connie will be expanded to help make the airport more

From Aim West Milford 5/20/2007
"Councilman Warden praised Tim Wagner, in charge of Greenwood Lake Airport
for his "tremendous job" in bringing the airport back to the caliber it once was. He said runways have been paved
and the banquet hall (once a highlight of West Milford's large group social scene) is ready and the diner is operating.
"It's a great place for Cub Scouts and Kids to go to watch the planes." He said dozens of jobs are being provided
to local people. Warden Praised wagner for his "considerable" work to bring the Greenwood Lake airport to the prestigious
place that longtime residents remember it being. He noted that not many such small airports still exist in New Jersey.

Girl Scout troop 679 from Pines Lake School in Wayne, NJ visited Greenwood
Lake Airport on Oct 20, 2007 as part of a
program to qualify for two
aviation badges. Hosted by Bob Leszkowicz, a multi-engine, commercial pilot
out of Greenwood Lake, the girls were taught some basic aviation
principles about airport operations, navigation and
the basics of flight.
Every girl was taken on a cockpit tour of a twin engine Duchess based at
the airport and saw
first hand the controls and instruments that pilots use
to fly a plane. Also included in their visit was a short presentation
flying in the 50's and 60's highlighted by a tour of the Lockheed
Constellation based at Greenwood Lake
Airport. Two girls have already
expressed their desire to come back to the airport to learn more about
with the hope of piloting a plane themselves some day.
