Hendricks County Airport (2R2) is located at Gordon Graham Field, between Avon and Danville just off US Highway 36. Located two miles southeast of Danville and 13 miles west of Indianapolis’ central business district, the airport is a general aviation facility.
Hendricks County Airport began operation in 2001 and comprises 239 acres with land available for expansion and development. It includes a flight training school and services about 18 flights daily.
Land needed for aviation vs. non-aviation use
Significant growth in piston and turbine aircraft is expected and will require airport growth in form of runway extension, additional T-hangars, corporate (private) hangars, and FBO facilities. Expansion will occur directly to the south of existing hangar and support facilities. Land for non-aviation uses is available along South CR 300 East and on west side of existing runway accessible by South CR 225 East.
The Development Zone
Zones 1-3 – Experimental Research and Development – The configuration of the Airport and its aeronautical infrastructure, lend itself to the creation of three Zones. The market assessment indicates very limited potential for development over the near-term. As with all the general aviation airports, the potential exists for enhanced aviation and aviation support activity.
Given the geographic location of the airport away from current major commercial arteries, a less commercial Research and Development use may emerge as a potential long-term focus for the Zones.
