Once owned by a private pilot who made his hobby of flying single-engine planes a business, the Waterbury-Oxford Airport has grown expeditiously since it opened for public use in 1969, and is in the midst of a major expansion that includes the recent opening of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection office to service international flights. California-based aircraft management company Clay Lacy Aviation is also undertaking a multiphase construction, expansion and renovation project. The $20-million first phase will feature a passenger terminal, executive offices and 40,000-square-foot hangar, which will accommodate more aircraft and allow maintenance to occur indoors.
