Airport location

Come live in Paradise.

The scenic Flying Y Airport is tucked along the Yellowstone River, right in the center of Montana's beautiful Paradise Valley. Just minutes from local dining, herds of elk, world-class fly fishing, and breath-taking art galleries. The city of Livingston is a 20 minute drive away, and Bozeman, Montana’s fastest growing city, is reached in 45 minutes. Yellowstone National Park's north entrance is just over an hour away.

Absaroka Mountains


A mere ten miles from the hangars, the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness forms an integral part of the 20 million acre Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the largest intact temperate wild ecosystems in the northern hemisphere. Many visitors describe their flight over these majestic peaks as the highlight of their trip.


Located a ½ mile from Hwy. 89, the Flying Y Airport is easily accessible year round. Well maintained roads provide access to both hangars, loft, and house. In the air, it is a short 20 minute flight to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, and less than an hour to Montana's largest city Billings. Whether you are paddling, boating, or fishing the river, biking and hiking in the summer, or skiing in the winter, you’re only minutes from your favorite outdoor recreation.

Property Overview
Runway Looking North

Airplane Friendly.

Established in 1983, the 5600 ft × 100 ft gravel runway is built on a former railroad that once connected Livingston to Yellowstone National Park. The long, well-maintained runway provides a generous landing site for many aircraft types. Everything from a Cessna 150, PC-12, and even a DC-3 have utilized the runway. Well-aligned with the local prevaling wind patterns, the runway provides ideal year round access to the facility. A separate graded heliport ensures easy helicopter access. And the paved apron provides direct access from the main hangar to the runway.
