To get to the Ickes Airport


Get off at Exit 146 on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Go North on I-99 and get off at the Osterburg/St. Clairsville Exit. Follow 869 West until you come to a Covered Bridge. Make a left by the Covered Bridge Rd - you should see an airport sign. then go 7/10 of a mile.

Turn right on Bowser Rd. there will be an airport sign. The airport is 4/10 of a mile up the road on left (another sign). There is a long blacktop driveway and a flag in the field. There is also a modular home directly across from the runway, so if you've passed it, you've gone too far!

If you are coming from the Johnstown area, after coming off Pleasantville Mt.(Rt.56E) go through the light. Keep going until you pass "The Cow," an ice cream shoppe, and take the very first road to the left - look for airport sign - this will be Belles Road. Keep going until you come to a church, go past the church (4/10) mile. At the "T" intersection, make a right. Follow the signs that say "Airpark." There is an Airport sign on the telephone pole at the next intersection after you pass the brick farm house. Make a left there. Go another mile or so until you come to the first blacktop road to your left. Follow the airport sign. Follow the directions above on how to finish getting to the airport.

If coming from Altoona, go South on I-99, and get off on 869 West. Follow 869 West (4 mile) until the Covered Bridge. Follow airport signs that will lead you to the airport.



If maps help - check out the thumbnails below and click on them or use arrow keys to go left or right once full size image is open. From left to right they increase in zoom scale and as they close in we have added satellite versions as well.  Note, the "A" Google marker is placed on Covered Bridge Road ....... the actual airport location is shown in later maps as a red spot - or on the satellite images by a white outline box.
