Calverton Executive Airpark is a public-owned private-use airport located three miles (5 km) west of the central business district of the Calverton hamlet, in the Town of Riverhead, Suffolk County, New York, United States. It is owned by the Town of Riverhead.

It was formerly the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant which was owned by the United States Navy and used to assemble, test, refit and retrofit jets built by the Grumman Corporation on Long Island.

The airport covers an area of 2921 acre (11.8 km2) which contains two asphalt and concrete runways: 14/32 measuring 10,000 x 200 feet (3,048 x 61 m) and 5/23 measuring 7,000 x 200 feet (2,133 x 61 m). Older aerial photographs show both runways marked with

Xs which indicate they are closed. More recent photographs show runway 14/32 with the Xs removed and that runway is operational according to the town's airport rules and regulations.

The airport is lightly used with most planes using the nearby Francis S. Gabreski Airport. Its most visible commercial air tenant is Island which since 2000 has been using the airport for its skydiving operations.
