The Meriden Markham Airport has been the home of the Silver City Flying Club Inc. since it was founded on November 4, 1946. It is a State of Connecticut registered non-profit, forty member, equity ownership flying club where each member owns one share of the club.  The purpose of the club is to improve the flying skills of the members and to provide them with aircraft for economical transportation and recreation.  The members of the club collectively own two aircraft, a 1981 Cessna C-172P and a 1979 Piper Archer PA28-181. Both aircraft are IFR certified. In order to exercise flying privileges in the club aircraft the member must have a minimum of Private Pilot’s license.


MMK is included in the Federal Aviation Administration's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems and the Connecticut Department of Transportation Statewide Airport System Plan.  MMK is a federally-obligated airport and a continual recipient of grant funds for capital improvements from these agencies.

Operations at MMK are overseen by the Meriden Aviation Commission, which meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the airport terminal building.

We look forward to serving your aviation needs at MMK!
