This quiet, country airport is the place where hundreds of people first experienced aviation, took flight training, and earned their pilot certificates. Located in rural Macomb County, 20 miles north of Detroit, the airport was originally known as New Haven Macomb.
Over the decades we've steadily grown and improved. Construction of new hangars, a major runway upgrade in 1999, a name change to Ray Community Airport in 2002, taxiway improvements and construction of even more hangars, and a completely remodeled airport office with pilot lounge have all produced a vibrant airport with modern facilities and a solid pilot base. And we're not finished yet!
Whether you simply want to visit an airport and watch planes in operation, or you'd like information about learning to fly, please feel free to stop by. We have coffee and donuts in the airport office every Saturday morning except holidays. Come in and visit with us or explore our website.
If you're a pilot looking for avgas at discount prices, put Ray Community on your checklist. If you're an aircraft owner looking to base your plane at a friendly, affordable field, check us out.
