Airport Information

The primary runway at Brookeridge, 9/27, has 2813 feet of paved surface and is flanked by paved parallel taxiways on each side. Runway 9 has a displaced threshold of 260 feet and Runway 27 has a displaced threshold of 205 feet. Available takeoff and landing distances should be reduced accordingly. Brookeridge is also served by a secondary 1680 foot N-S restricted landing area which is available for limited use when conditions dictate that a landing on that runway might be a safer option. The airport is owned and operated by Brookeridge Aero Associates, Inc. (BAA) who maintain the runways and taxiways on BAA property, keep the grass mowed and the snow plowed, and provide for the availability of aviation fuel to Brookeridge residents. BAA has 26 shareholders, the majority of which are current residents of Brookeridge. Operating funds for BAA come from fees charged to Brookeridge residents and tie-down tenants, as well as income from fuel sales.

Brookeridge is served by a private non-precision instrument approach (VOR-DME with GPS overlay) and is located beneath the 3600 foot shelf of the O’Hare Class B airspace and just west of the 1900 foot shelf of the Midway Class C airspace. IFR departure clearances with a void time are normally available from Chicago Approach via telephone if the weather does not permit a VFR departure with an airborne clearance pickup.

Our unique location in a developed suburban area requires some special operating rules to ensure that we maintain good relations with our neighbors and can continue to enjoy airpark living in a location convenient to all that a major metropolitan area has to offer. The use of the field is restricted to Brookeridge residents and others with airport rights, and their fly-in guests. Those guests must receive a briefing covering the essentials of the operating rules at Brookeridge before being granted permission to use the airport. Some of the highlights are given below.

  1. No commercial operations of any kind are permitted.
  2. No repetitious takeoffs and landings, touch and go landings, or mid-field takeoffs are allowed.
  3. Pattern altitude is 1600 MSL.
  4. All traffic is to use a basic left hand pattern for approach and landing, but either a 45 left, 45 right or a straight out departure is approved.
  5. Radio equipped aircraft should monitor 122.9 at all times when in the pattern, on runways or taxiways. Announce your intentions and be visually alert for non-radio-equipped aircraft.
  6. With calm or light wind conditions, the preferred runway is 9.
  7. All run-ups should be conducted adjacent to where the airplane is hangared or parked.
