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.
Livability.com ranked Bozeman Montana 11th in its 2015 Top 100 Best Places to Live.
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.
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.
