New York’s Orange County Airport is an untowered general aviation airport located 1 mile (2 km) southwest of village of Montgomery, in the Town of Montgomery, New York. The 526 acre (2.1 km2) airport is owned by Orange County and can be found at the junction of state highways 211 and NY-416.

It is a popular place for aspiring local pilots to learn to fly or practice their skills. With 125,000 takeoffs and landings annually, it is New York's second-busiest general-aviation airport.

Transmissions between pilots and the airport are rebroadcast on a one-watt station at 88.1 megahertz, so it is possible to tune into them on a standard car radio while driving in the vicinity.

The airport's low traffic and out-of-the-way location have been making it a popular place to store private jets. In 2006 county officials were reported to be working on a deal with a local developer to build 10 private luxury hangars to cater to what they saw as a growing market and raise money for the airport without raising taxes.
